Give me a questionnaire, a survey,
And I will protest.
I will protest at the format,
The little space allotted to the answers
And above all the unconditional authority
That you assume in the asking.
I will be suspicious of your intentions
As to what you want?
Or whom you want out?
What is your ulterior motive?
Howsoever you may deny.
For I know you are not St. Augustine.
I will respond to you
Perhaps out of an obligation
A sense of responsibility,
And will force someone in me to answer
The rest of me
Will be in complete resistance.
