Villanelle:There are more poets than there are poems

Villanelle : There are more poets than there are poems

There are more poets than there are poems
   Eveybody writes with some poets’ tongue
Do duckweed and mugwort breed well in loams

If only those who teach could write poems
   The world will be spared many gasps in lung
There are more poets than there are poems

And there’d be less of those who push poems
   And even less of those who parse the tongue
Do duckweed and mugwort breed well in loams

Who says this be damned ever in dungeons
   Let billions rant and rage in their own tongue
There are more poets than there are poems

Words mean what they seem beyond their poems
   To hell with those who demean words with dung
Do duckweed and mugwort breed well in loams

Every human has a right to write poems
   As every bird empties its sing-song lung
There are more poets than there are poems
Do duckweed and mugwort breed well in loams
