Poetry Post: Goodbye to the Parade Grounds

Goodbye to the Parade Grounds

I expect no kinship, look for no tribe.
I will be content if you consent to leave me alive.
Please don’t ask if I’m your “side”;
I’ll lick your wounds if you’ll lick mine,
But I will be content if you consent just to leave me alive,
For I have no label, no family, and no Pride.
