Last Resort

img_0385How dare you tell me what to do

Can’t you see I am full grown

You think you know what’s best for me

I can manage on my own


You can’t be right all the time

You’ve ruled the roost too long

Why should I follow your advice

I’m not dancing to that song


I will do what I want to do

And make up my own mind

I don’t need your help these days

Hush please, if you’d be so kind


If I’m in a bind, I’ll sort it out

By giving it plenty of thought

Then, if and when, I’ve tried but failed

You’ll be my last resort.
