I'm Not Hostile


I'm not hostile.
Maybe impatient.
Maybe too long I've waited,
To say...
Get out of my way.

No...
I'm not hostile.
But...
Long I've waited,
With the giving others benefit...
To keep me in their grip.

Up on signs I've clearly posted,
'Hey you...
Out of my way! '

In black and white,
Big blocks to noticed...
'Hey you,
Out of my way! '

But I'm not hostile.
No.
Maybe impatient.
Perhaps...
Maybe too long I've waited,
To say get out of my way.

No...
I'm not hostile.
But...
Long I've waited,
With the giving others benefit...
To keep me in their grip.

Up on signs I've posted,
'Hey you...
Out of my way! '

I'm not hostile.
I just want you out of my way.

I'm not hostile,
'Hey you...
Out of my way! '

No I'm not hostile.
I just want you out of my way.

I'm not hostile,
'Hey you...
Out of my way! '

Up on signs I've clearly posted,
'Hey you...
Out of my way! '

In black and white,
Blocks big and noticed...
'Hey you,
Out of my way! '

But I'm not hostile,
'Meow with a woof-woof.'
No...
I am not hostile,
'Meow with a woof-woof.
Meow with a woof-woof.'

~Owww.
Why did you bite me? ~

You got a 'little' too close.

And pays us but with earth and dust;
