Villanelle: If you scoff at the world we live in

Villanelle : If you scoff at the world we live in

If you scoff at the world we live in
   You’ll slip and fall and break your neck
Better bury your bones in between

Seek not our galaxy to win
   For myriads luminous beck
If you scoff at the world we live in 

Each in his solipsistic bin
   Twists and turns and rots without break
Better bury your bones in between

What life there is has locked us within
   With no way out but by mistake
If you scoff at the world we live in

Even safe eutopias spin
   On their dreamers’ axes breakneck
Better bury your bones in between

Ask not if life’s but wanton sin
   The moon also rises by daybreak
If you scoff at the world we live in
   Better bury your bones in between

    Hi Catie! Looks like you let yourself go for once...for the upteenth time, if I'm not wrong. I'm afraid I don't keep count. I knew you'd go for this one, for your own poems tend towards the philosophical. If I can find the time, I'll roam around your own productions. You know I'm getting on in years, and diurnal chores weigh tons by the day. In the meantime, here's wishing you: "Happy Summering!". Wignesan
