Renegade…

 

They said I don’t belong,
that I am an alien to
their shallow, insipid
world. My foreign words,
my foreign ways, too
exotic for their average
minds…
They said, they said,
they said a lot but
I didn’t listen. Though
they disapproved I
Don’t take offence…
I am my own hero,
I rampage!
I run amok!
If you dare stand
in my way, I’ll provoke
thunder and lightning,
I’ll swing my spade!
You didn’t abandon me,
I am a renegade!
