A space with no windows, four walls and a door,
To escape, retreat and not bother me no more.
You may have access and that’s only with an invite,
Take to many steps in my direction and you may encounter my bite.
A haven of security and my ultimate LION’S DEN,
No entry, no company and only I say when.
You can linger in my environment and even relax for a while,
Just know this is not home and you will be walking the mile.
I’ll speak when spoken to, hello, goodbye and thank you,
Anything else you thought to deserve, is not what I have to do.
Mind my business always and I’ll just let you handle yours,
Keep your own porch clean and I’ll deal with my own chores!
