Instructions - Poem by Phil Soar

'Sit up straight,
Stand in line',
Instructions from the start
'Write this down,
Read this book',
Recite it from the heart
All the world was asking,
Everyone's in charge,
Is it me, or is it time
That I was free at last?

Since infancy
The intimacy
Of people towering over me
Seemed in excess
For my prowess
and always seemed to worry me
Now all that I am asking
Is leave me well alone
Instructions never helped
Build myself a home
