Control

Professor, therapist, author and poet.






Someone's always on the dole. Is that someone due?
Someone's always in control.
Restraint by a guiding goal. Fiat by a pick-and-roll.
Is that someone you?

Someone's always free at-large. Is that someone new?
Someone's always taking charge.
Lifelike mannequins of parge. Bespattered by means of sparge.
Is that someone you?

Someone's always on patrol. Is that someone shrew?
Someone's always in control.
Power by a funny droll. Dominion by a cajole.
Is that someone you?

Someone's always in demand. Is that someone true?
Someone's always in command.
Love notes written in the sand. Sanction for a one-night stand.
Is that someone you?
