Villanelle: The Dilemma Of The Non-Violent - 20 - Poem by T Wignesan

Villanelle: The Dilemma of the Non-Violent – 20

To what extent violent thoughts can be crimes
Is there one person who’s not guilty by thought
The Real in the Apparent see you rhymes

With what reason Raskolnikov murder rhymes
Does Nietsche see in him the greatness of thought
To what extent violent thoughts can be crimes

Can the rogue State justify wanton war crimes
Nor the Police non-citizen rights stamp out
The Real in the Apparent see you rhymes

Who tolls the church bells controls also the chimes
He who can think must also control the thought
To what extent violent thoughts can be crimes

Wanton acts of violence breed in all climes
Kubla Khan repeats the way Ghengis Khan fought
The Real in the Apparent see you rhymes

Does not Death commit unjust ultimate crimes
Who returns from the au-dela knows true nought
To what extent violent thoughts can be crimes
The Real in the Apparent see you rhymes
