What’s so wrong with ‘me first’?
That I should tender
to my very molecules
That I should orchestrate
my own brainwaves
and insist
on creating ‘value of self’
for selfsake?

So here it is
-the boundary line
..separating me from the world
It spells ‘my sanity’
I choose to call it ‘Me First’

Any objections?
