Can Watch

Can watch
Can't touch
It's a bubble of trouble
Turns my into oscar the grouch

Unstoppable drama 
Could lead to brain trauma
Can't let that be
I'll just keep my ora clean

Do my best
Keep my head afloat
No control
Let the trouble flow

Listen to the occasional bicker
Feel my radar flicker
When it's getting to hot
I make sure to step back a notch

Keep my space
Been to long
This situation
Should come with a warning
Or a date or expiration

I know you know
It's been said
You know how I feel
This is no natural disaster
A controlled situation
Blown up ten times faster

I refuse to support
A abusive mission, 
You should abort

I stay miles apart
I'm a phone call away
Hoping you'll top off
Give yourself relief 
Oh, one day

    Some situations are harder to control than others. What is so simple for some people is so, SOOOOO, complicated for others. I like your work again. I guess because it all seems to be so personalized with your rhyme, near rhyme, a cleverness is there. Nice work again Sharon.

    In the first paragrah, maybe one typo my instead of me. I'm not sure, though, if it isn't please ignore this remark lol.
