POETRY: I WILL FOLLOW YOUR OPINIONS NOWHERE BY PAUL TRISTRAM

For I have a decision making mind of my own!
Enough courage, determination and enthusiasm
to sink three fleets of battleships.
Besides, I’ve found another path right over here
and look, there’s another one just over there.
I think I’ll mosey along this one for awhile
until I feel like changing tracks somewhere up ahead.
I’ll take my time today and rush tomorrow
then take Wednesday and Thursday off completely.
I’ll turn everything upside down upon its head
and sideways if I want to and I am going to want to.
It is not that you are wrong at all, my dear fellow
it’s just that I remember being born a free man
and I shall keep wearing the coat that fits me the best.
