Discourse in Filial Shift

Don’t blame me for the difference
Apart from the variance of time
There is of parentage, location
And factoring in of education

I like the counsel, and its source
Can only be agreed of as wise
My views are judged non-yielding
But first and last . . . its me

Maybe this will help
Biometrics – the id, genes, and history
Rest assured won’t betray you
Even when the thought has been I had

Give my rebellion its chance
I see it won’t end up prodigal
I am armed beyond joey and eaglet
Believe me, I am your boy, and also man
