The Collar, #SoCS

Control or Not Control, That is the Question

The Collar

A ring of control around our neck,

This one lay empty upon the deck

Some are made of metal, some of leather

Some are heavy or light as a feather

The ones worn by dogs are not for pretend

The ones by humans may be a fashion trend

The better way of control may be a harness

Where it holds your body from a major mess

But we as humans must truly confess

It is not our body that we need to control

but a small component that drops us in a hole

It is our tongue that spews gentle or mean

A component that is hard for us to keep clean

A component that we must learn to control

For this should forever be our life long goal.

Linda G. Hill Stream of Consciousness Saturday has given us a fun prompt of “collar”.

Come join in on the fun and see how we all tackle this challenge. And as hinted to in the poem above remember the value of being kind. This should be a goal for all of us.

Always Be Kind
