Villanelle: The Dilemma of the Non-Violent – 27

Pounce not like Tiger on lone backwoods fields
Never know who’d be chasing balls fall into holes
Balls roll back to earth from smooth Elysian fields

Stuff the coffin with hot golf balls till it yields
Watch that swing cuff not some angel’s soft turf curls
Pounce not like Tiger on lone backwoods fields

Learn to swing the club of all sizes and wields
Too late when on Heaven’s downy udders’ twirls
Balls roll back to earth from smooth Elysian fields

Train that eye to watch how balls shoot through cloud shields
For once on that turf sound of choir psalms rolls
Pounce not like Tiger on lone backwoods fields

Swing that club while you can on mad muddy fields
Till muscle bone and nerve combine swing as bowls
Balls roll back to earth from smooth Elysian fields

What particles swing through which magnetic fields
To shape humans who roll (like) golf balls into holes
Pounce not like Tiger on lone backwoods fields
Balls roll back to earth from smooth Elysian fields
