What annoys me

For the contest by Frank H

What annoys me?

You ask me what annoys me
There be so many things
But what annoys me most of all
And to me anger brings
Are those ones, who try to tell me
How I should live my life
And every time I meet these folk
I cause them heaps of strife

Cause I am ‘me’ a ‘one off’ fellow
And would be left alone
I think my own way all the time
And stand here on my own
I do not follow anyone
And don’t you follow me
Cause I am no authority
I won’t tell you what to be.

So all those folk who would tell me
Just how to run my life
I tell them all ‘leave me alone
Unless you want some strife’
For my own path be self-reliance
I heed no truths at all
And all authoritarians
They drive me up the wall.
