Don’t Shoot!

cheetah

Don’t Shoot!
Either
From your camera or your gun

I am not yours
To maim or tame

I am not yours
To confine
To a frame,
A cage,
A bowl
Or a wall

I am not yours
To tie to a tether
Be made to speak and roll for your pleasure

We’re both animals,
But it’s difficult to remember
Who is the lesser—

In any case,
Don’t shoot!
