Villanelle: The Dilemma of the Non-Violent – 5

Kings Prophets alike the Democratic State
Do/can/may use force on people they enslave
And individual rights incriminate

Oppressed peoples’ rights remain inanimate
Until some Garibaldi wields the glaive
Kings Prophets alike the Democratic State

The art of government’s how to amputate
The will of the people own voice to save
And individual rights incriminate

The Administration’s the stooge incarnate
Festers in bosom the Secret Police knave
Kings Prophets alike the Democratic State

Who by Divine Right rule in the Police State
Muzzling media voice their power to save
And individual rights incriminate

Till all factions through coercion emulate
Tyrants who use violence and manic rave
Kings Prophets alike the Democratic State
Do individual rights incriminate
