Haven't posted in a little while... Been having some writer's block so this was something fun to do, I laughed. I find it obnoxious, maybe you won't.

Envisioned

by Housecat

My actions are said to be brash, I'm in need of cash

but the government has slashed my chances at getting cheap tuition.

I'm in need of beauty sleep,

no I'm not in danger of malnutrition

I'm just a kid with ambition on a mission

to rid this world of the laws that forbid, my people's will to live

Yes I have 'flaws',

but listen to me when I say, I'm not using needles to fix them

No i do not need your permission, I am of my own volition

I can't hear the guffaws,

because the applause drowns them out

There are claws and paws at my feet,

pausing will only admit my defeat

I refuse to withdraw,

Because of their jaws that snap and bite

I've got plenty of gauze for those steel traps

So I'll spend every penny,

use the full power of my inalienable rights, to rewrite, those dated narratives It is absolutely imperative

You can glower, but I will not cower

I am empowered

I'll set those old 'traditions' alight

with every syllable that bounds out of my mouth

Now watch those embers take route

WOW!!! This was a fine exposition of polemics. I think. You were true to your word. You were all over the map. It, however, left a creative powerhouse in its wake. No, you're right it is obnoxious. That makes it all the better.
