Biased Double Standard

Children
Put in their room
Put in their place

Children
Toys taken away
To learn their place

To be rude
Child
Egocentrism
Child
Tantrums
Child
Irrational arguments
Child

How come
When he does these things
You ignore
You laugh
You joke
You just say no

No discipline
Nothing learned

How come
When I did these things
You take
You exiled
You punish
You never just said no

Always disciplined
Always learned

Why don't you see
IT DOESN'T WORK
Why don't you see
That there is bias
That there is double-standard
Within what you do

Maybe you're tired
Maybe you're done
Maybe he's the favorite
Maybe I'm loathed

All I know
All I can see
Is it is not working
Now do your job
And do it right

This poem is about: 
My family
