Entitlement

Thinking you have the right to possess,
Undressing & caressing her under duress

Lying or cheating or covering your tracks,
Having little respect as the relationship cracks

Without due effort or talent you expect to win,
Claiming the award with a Cheshire Cat grin

If we do the same job, then pay us the same,
Putting food on the table is never a game

Believing your happiness is more important than us,
Your opinion more valuable, my input superfluous

What’s mine is yours, what’s yours is yours,
You relax on the sofa while I do the chores

You fail to see the error of your ways,
Compromise and sacrifice are deserving of praise

Feeling superior to others limits your growth,
Self awareness and kindness benefits both.
