Sonnet About Control
When I was young, hearing the great voice of dad and mum
Exactly what the procedures was I could not understand,
Measures at home, filling the void their parents had begun
Key prevention dominates the room and captured command.
The value of control fanning their idolize way of domination
How to exercise caution through the experiment of authority,
We became strong, took ownership and demand determination
The things we love and hate took notions in our community.
The bad go wandering might benefit from regulate adventure,
The good procedures parting checks that needs new direction,
Waves of high standards surrender the framework structure
In struggling man lies the curb of undefeated milestone.
Quantum of awards shape the chains that keep them bound
Controlling decades evoke powers with discipline sound.
