and without the opportunity of compromise.

There is no understanding

of this decision

So unreasonable


It changes nothing

Is the same as usual

And all of a sudden


It makes no sense

this unfair rejection that parents make

of things of little significance

Simply because

'I don't want you to'

This is a case of

'I'm big and you're small

and there's nothing you can do about it'

Newsflash: I'm going to do it anyway
