Run From Your Home Essay, Research Paper
Run from your home!
Flee to the wilderness!
Leave the ones that hold you down
Beneath their wedding rings and Mercedes SUV’s
Who says you need school?
Who says you need parents, teachers, priests and Dawson’s Creek?
Swathed in that Gap uniform
Mercilessly sewn by the fragile hands of your “lesser” sisters and brothers
You’re lending them a caring hand
Every time you buy a pair
Those super cute khaki flares
Pepito and Maria receive their pay
A beating and a dime
You stylish humanitarian!
I say strip off your jailing clothing
Run naked through the streets
Just make sure your running fast!
Run your naked self out into the woods
Build a shack, a ranch, a 10-story condo
Or don’t build anything at all
Live with Mother Nature
Among the soothing arms of a tree.
If you ask me
Everyone should have pets
Always let them run free
Chew up things
Let your tiger claw at your chairs
Let your wolf gnaw on your shoes
I say get some sheep
Or some cows
Whatever you may prefer.
Gather some friends
Create a commune
Just make sure you don’t serve Kool Aid
The public and government
Generally look down upon that
No orange robes
Late night nudist dances around a bonfire
Never eat your pets.
