Dependent Upon My Independence

They think that I need them

as if without them I would

be lost.

I am purrfectly capable

of getting my own food

if I want.

I am more than able

to get that drink of water

if I need.

You see, I don’t need

to be waited on hand

and foot.

You offered your servitude

and it would be foolish not

to take it.
