My Bounty

Who gave you rights to my body? Or rights to my time and labor?

Have you supplied me with shelter enough to grant you unpreferred access to my bounty?

Am I a servant to you? Or mere property?

The food of this body offers no sustenance when taken by demand,

This hot dish feeds only when offered with a happy heart

Take and eat and soon your muscles and your skin fall from your bones

For they never receive abundant nourishment or love’s sweetness
