I Refuse to Be Born

by Kim Henry

I REFUSE TO BE BORN

I refuse to be born.

I reject the idea of joining such a decadent world.

'Cos I know their decadence will rub on me

And voila!

Before I know it,

I would have become

Just like the rest of them;

A mere self-centred earthling.

I'd primarily be just another earthling

Ready to sacrifice my friends

As I climb the societal ladder,

And I'd be craving to destroy those

Whose views are contrary to mine.

Dear my prospective papa

And my mum-to-be,

Do something before its too late;

Just do something!

To pre-empt my procreation

Before you copulate!

KIM
