Immune to Approvals: a Poem
The last time word "approval" meant something to me
had to do with a credit card or a bank transaction
but in my private life I never fall on my religious knee
in front of anyone to get an approval for my action.
I just don't care how people judge my decisions
they shouldn't even play judges with a full plate of their own
so many times in my life it has caused some collisions
with total strangers as well as with those people known.
Some folks have a hard time accepting your adulthood
so they like to act as a grownup towards a child
but then a lesson is in order to be understood
and we can make it harsh, or we can make it mild
Every so often someone plays a normative ass
preaching about appropriate, and morally right
oftentimes pretending to be of a smarter class
while tending to view everything as black or white.
So let's see them as amusing and goofy and fun
whenever a target of their smart ass approving
let's give them a smile till their preaching is done
but then show them clearly it leaves us unmoving.
