Villanelle: If You Knew What The Rest In Silence Think


(if a guy not so Sterling be)

If only you knew what the rest in silence think
You wouldn’t rush to hang him on a string
Look at his gal and see why he’s such a stink

We’re all Africans whichever way you blink
If you fathered Man do not your sons sting
If only you knew what the rest in silence think

If your girl leant close in Magic Johnson’s clink
Wouldn’t you bounce up and with envy wring
Look at his gal and see why he’s such a stink

Leave the guy alone and let him jealous sink
His gal will drop him and millions you bring
If only you knew what the rest in silence think

Be not so self-righteous and haughty think
No sweet Blackie stuck on Whitey you not sting
Look at his gal and see why he’s such a stink

Lucy’s blood drains down Cro-Magnon’s brain link
All the world’s but one long genetic string
If only you knew what the rest in silence think
Look at his gal and see why he’s such a stink

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
