Villanelle: Should not Masters be They who cut through lands Should not Masters be They who cut through lands Who for pittance sake serve up cheap labour Which Master cleans not house with migrant hands Who must be seen giving with open hands Let them oust enemies without bother Should not Masters be They who cut through lands Did not caravans snake through Wild West lands Nor mountain lions snarl at brave Quaker Which Master cleans not house with migrant hands Who seeks to cow the Tyrant with commands While stoking ego with canon fodder Should not Masters be They who cut through lands Then sack put to wrack big beauteous lands Make no amends tear down stars stripes’ grandeur Which Master cleans not house with migrant hands Would that migrants learn not to bite soft hands That feed them at their door barbed by rigour Should not Masters be They who cut through lands Which Master cleans not house with migrant hands © T.
