From a medieval method of checking accounts by a duplicate register. Sense of “dominate, direct” is mid-15c. Related: Controlled; controlling.
I have no interest in the settling of accounts,
For I brought you into the world of my own free will.
You owe me nothing,
Little one half-formed in my body,
Fatherless so far.
Only, owe yourself.
We are the ones who broke the wheel,
Who insisted on our selves.
