Tethering

Parents, teach your children well:
Don’t leave it to society
To inculcate the rights and wrongs
Through information Technology.
Don’t plead out loud the strife they make
Because you find it hard to take,
Control relinquished long ago
Because that seemed the way to go,
Yes, out of desperation-
That isn’t inconceivable
But the greater sadness comes
From finding it believable
That nothing, nothing, NOTHING AT ALL
Should stand in the way of kids having it all,
Inclining them in time, it seems,
To flounder in pursuit of dreams
