Fruit-Flavored Requests Denied

‘Twas sixty-some years ago
I first walked upon this continent
baby-steps away from your arrival:
An uninvited guest who’s overstayed your welcome
A cornered, unimposing, figure of a man
The reprehensible intruder
staining my mind red with rage
at your evil-ish persistence to defy my Notice of Eviction

Left with no more than 30 days to comply
with no further extensions of time
making threats of resistance:
I repeat “you’re at the legal limit”
Request for Reconsideration
stamped
Denied… Denied… Denied…
