Reverse Barometer

You're doing things I never could
   things I'll never see.
How can you will as you would;
   that's not how it should be.

As you would do, I swear I don't;
   I'll never be like you.
And as you would I know I won't;
   to conviction I'll be true.

You will be my reverse barometer;
   with you I'll know how not to be.
If you remain so forever and ever,
   in like manner I'll be me.

You wrote the book that I won't follow;
   I feel I have a better path.
Your strange agenda I can't hollow;
   far too filthy for a bath.

As you would do, I promise I won't;
   I'll never be like you.
And as you would, please know I don't;
   it's to God I must be true.

That's the way we came about;
   freedom just to say our will.
So by my stance I will shout,
   until I know I've had my fill.
