Citizen of the World

Yes.  I am a citizen of the world.

You may think it odd but if you were lucky enough to be a fly on my soul You’d want to be me. You silly vainglorious fool

I know I’ve been around for eons and I’m not the least bit worried about where I go or when I come

You may be over-ripe and seething
but you’ll just have to bear with me
as I Flesh out my own republic, my field, my house Myself

You see

I did not kill a baby or maim a child.
I will not kill a baby or maim a child.

So.
No more will I do what I am told.
I distrust what I am told.
Do not speak to me of
Hasty land grabs
Tribunal funerals
Citizenry or Politics

When all your sound bites and smart quotes are poor meat for my 
famished  soul
Hear me

Do you dare to tell me to think what I can think?

Assume nothing. Fool.
