Villanelle: The Dilemma of the Non-Violent – 3

Politics’ the art of decrying nations
The national art’s how to prostitute Mother
Arming nations need no justifications

The People's Ego broadens shores of nations
Which provokes invasions by the Other
Politics’ the art of decrying nations

Tongking’s engulfed behind United Nations
You know whom strangled by the likes of Hitler
Arming nations need no justifications

Victim stones make no dent on pretensions
Vietnamese mothers bear with stoic laughter
Politics’ the art of decrying nations

Resist and invite self-mortifications
Retaliate and be dubbed mortal sinner
Arming nations need no justifications

Hug the Nation during incinerations
Pride will stand us good stead in Life hereafter
Politics’ the art of decrying nations
Arming nations need no justifications
