Poem 140, Sonnet 75: Deference - Poem by Samer Madbak

Domesticated, this bloodthirsty beast
Is tame, these feral urges are subdued
Refined and meek the erstwhile brash and crude
And fragrant fasting foils that flagrant feast
Emasculated, these whims are policed
Austere and abstinent replace the lewd
And that which was with livid lust imbued
Is now renewed with order's godly yeast
Come graze, the craze is lulled, the wolf is fleeced
With white submission, dulled and plain the shrewd
The leash is tight, the prurient a prude
Your wills be done, my own for good is leased
I am your slave, the vane that tails your mood
The bridled knave, the passions unreleased!
