Looking up just strains your nape,
but standing there and looking down
makes every fence a sore red tape,
and every trespass grow a frown.
You yourself always decide
when consequently where you go
and which rules you must abide,
and when you strictly must say no.
So you need to know yourself
and strengths and weaknesses alike,
don’t put decisions on the shelf
but do not try to add a spike.
