Villanelle: Don't we all cling to Life tooth and nail guts in groin

Villanelle : Don't we all cling to Life tooth and nail guts in groin

Don't we all cling to Life tooth and nail guts in groin
E'en if the insatiable Beast glowers close behind
No matter what nor how long the grind we bear 'n' pine

Merchants of Faith made in mythic images divine
Tell us all their gods have told them what lurks behind
Don't we all cling to Life tooth and nail guts in groin

Each in his own way nailed to some Alien loin
All assured this World's for the best of Mankind
No matter what nor how long the grind we bear 'n' pine

True gods are those Men who behind the scenes combine
Thrust up Leaders who lisp words for Them who us bind
Don't we all cling to Life tooth and nail guts in groin

Children grow up and swear by their words anodine
Believe rot Batman Hulks Wonder Woman's behind
No matter what nor how long the grind we bear 'n' pine

Till that day the bubble bursts the last word on line
Shows neither Nations nor gods mean well for Mankind
Don't we all cling to Life tooth and nail guts in groin
No matter what nor how long the grind we bear 'n' pine

A capital "A", yes. It's a mess outdoors here, wind and ice storm, the streets look post bar brawl with shattered glass everywhere. Warm and cozy indoors, luckily unaffected by the power outages... so far so good. Embrace those cherry blossoms for me!

You couldn't have hit the nail....GREAT Spring day over Paris. Cherry blossoms in full bloom and my dingDink dingkaDing bird back to look for his Aranjuez maid...Capital "A", if you don't mind for "alien". I guess the "freeze" takes longer to recede where you're bunked. Here, we've hélas seen the back of it. Thanks and thanks again. How are ya? Wignesan
