a Poem by Raquel Swann

Am I a joke to you?

A jester for your court?

I’m not who you think I am…

Forcing my retort.

I seek escape from you.

You’re holding me back.

I’m not the clown but,

The dog who is on the attack.

Prepare yourselves,

My life is not a game.

A day of reckoning of which,

You’ll never be the same.

Content in the bed I made,

Sleeping without a care,

Prodding with your stick,

You had to poke mama bear.
