Can sequestration really be a choice,

If the alternatives require groveling?

The surrendering of one’s full dignity,

And treated as some unwanted pet?

Or might it be called preservational,

Acting kindly to oneself for a change?

Outside the established expectations,

That any punctuation brings shame?     

Or is such hideous treatment prelude,  

In a systematic source of vile natures?     

Purposely spurring someone to run off  

While simultaneously skirting any blame             

And causal to someone opting their exile

From a country, they once called… family
