You Can't Yank My Chain

Written by: Tom Wright

I don't lease space within my head,
To allow an opinion to lay and fester;
I'll not permit others to cause me dread,
Or my deepest thoughts to sequester;

I value friendships if their refined,
And convey to me no pre-conditions.
Don't come to me with change in mind,
Daring to take, or change, inhibitions.

You'll find I won't be a friend so kind,
If inflicting on me any unwanted pain;
It won't merit the effort you'll find,
For I won't allow you to yank my chain.
