I Think I Know
I think I know,
When others think they know.
What my mind informs seems right;
Others’ minds don’t matter.
The world is where I am,
Other worlds are like fiction.
At others, I can laugh
But let them not laugh at me.
Let me win and crush all else;
They don’t deserve to be seen;
Visible like me to the masses.
Why should any contender be here at all?
The animal in me does not allow another male,
To either pass or even fail respectably.
I may not demarcate the territory where I am boss,
As dogs do; but I do something similar to
Those who dare to stand up in opposition.
