These days, it rises without reason
Dangerously close to the surface
It frightens me.
I call upon my best fighters
To push it back down, subdue it.
Neutralise the threat.
Discipline and Control are my soldiers
I love them.
Though it isn’t a healthy love
We need each other too much.
They’re fighting clever
But they’re getting tired.
When they have to go so often into battle I’m afraid
Some day I’ll lose them.
And then we’re all lost.
