Villanelle: The Dilemma of the Non-Violent - 35

Who’d watch tele if it showed Promised Kingdom When breaking news takes us through hard day’s sour sweat Does blood-blast Yin-Yang tussle stay gut boredom Broken bones shattered glass Doom’s Day sunset bomb Pan-flutes nectar river angels who don’t sweat Who’d watch tele if it showed Promised Kingdom Piped South-Sea strains virgin damsels frolicsome Singing psalms all day long on banks Euphrates Does blood-blast Yin-Yang tussle stay gut boredom Who’d want crystal-clear streams under palm Nubile damsels gambolling sans due regret Who’d watch tele if it showed Promised Kingdom World pre-ordained or Yin-Yang clash at random The Magic-Lantern show spinning wild inter-net Does blood-blast Yin-Yang tussle stay gut boredom Does Supra-Intelligence conduct Kingdom While physical laws here on Earth operate Who’d watch tele if it showed Promised Kingdom Does blood-blast Yin-Yang tussle stay gut boredom © T.
