Villanelle: The Dilemma of the Non-Violent – 31

Pious promises roll not smog from dulled eyes
Once again Great Leaders refuse to be bound
The disease that blinds men ripe greed wrapped in lies

Those who keep Congress in their pockets to melt ice
Till Manhattan feet dig Arctic ice underground
Pious promises roll not smog from dulled eyes

Greenhouse gases spout from fat COP hot-air mice
Who will for polar bear cubs build igloo round
The disease that blinds men ripe greed wrapped in lies

The East must the West overtake in all vice
But drive masses hop along with feet still bound
Pious promises roll not smog from dulled eyes

Look not far to see where the fault really lies
Leaders must simply make nations’ health look sound
The disease that blinds men ripe greed wrapped in lies

Once again they’ll hug kiss part with tears in eyes
While we’ll be lulled to think World safe and sound
Pious promises roll not smog from dulled eyes
The disease that blinds men ripe GREED wrapped in lies
