Villanelle: The lesson cannot just be one life's lost

Villanelle : The lesson cannot just be one life’s lost

     for Trayvon Martin’s parents

The lesson cannot just be one life’s lost
   When all around daily thousands are crushed
Small lives remind us of big causes most

Who followed whom and for what purpose just
   The enigma’s always formed well-brushed
The lesson cannot just be one life’s lost

Generations march step by step foremost
   To repeal Tyrant Laws meanly enmeshed
Small lives remind us of big causes most

Is there such a thing as a real black ghost   
   Would it have in its hands a black head dashed
The lesson cannot just be one life’s lost

Would those who cling most to this world make boast
   That the next honour their desires cherished
Small lives remind us of big causes most

Can our lives mean as much as those lost
   In great battles of the minds Space unleashed
The lesson cannot just be one life’s lost
Small lives remind us of big causes most
