Villanelle: Ask Not What The Devil's The Devil - Poem by T (no first name) Wignesan

Villanelle: Ask not What the Devil’s the Devil!


Ask not What the Devil’s the Devil
Back to back with the Holy Being
When Good snakes what leads not to Evil

God! Why can’t the doG be forged on anvil
Black sparks from Whitesmiths black doG yelling
Ask not What the Devil’s the Devil

Einsteins Heisenbergs delved atom’s navel
Yet true Truman dropped bombs without trying*
When Good snakes what leads not to Evil

Ask not why go(o) d GOD won’t quell Evil
Nor why BAD dab at GO(o) D reigning
Ask not What the Devil’s the Devil

Good needs Evil much as God the Devil
Watch male-fe-male in abject writhing
When Good snakes what leads not to Evil

Only Time makes not the picture stand still
The end of Day lets drop the ceiling
Ask not What the Devil’s the Devil
When Good snakes what leads not to Evil

* He could have dropped them on some deserted Pacific atoll first to warn the Enemy.
