Villanelle: What DESIGN made the emerald EARTH defile its lone joy

Villanelle : What DESIGN made this emerald EARTH defile its lone joy

What DESIGN made this emerald EARTH defile its lone joy
No washer-woman nor City Hall replace Nature's cares
Blow wind blow comb the beaches clean drain the ravines dry

So easy to put the blame on Mars for its first meteor fly
Churn our oceans into crawling Primal Soup unawares
What DESIGN made this emerald EARTH defile its lone joy

H2O is all the planet needs the Monster Man to buy
While in between reptiles birds animals small change scares
Blow wind blow comb the beaches clean drain the ravines dry

Both Man and Beast must replicate much as cells multiply
As eat they must to produce more and more from their rears
What DESIGN made this emerald EARTH defile its lone joy

Till mighty men rise from urns to share power on the sly
With clever men who prey on masses with their must-buy wares
Blow wind blow comb the beaches clean drain the ravines dry

Yet mighty men must let clever men this world with banks buy
Would winds lash the Earth to make ZHEN thunder our world fears
What DESIGN made this emerald EARTH defile its lone joy
Blow wind blow comb the beaches clean drain the ravines dry
