Villanelle: The Dilemma of the Non-Violent – 6

Should the State legitimate entity be
To make the use of force It generates valid
True father protects for life his progeny

Change helmsmen and change its personality
The State’s a will o’ the wisp under tight lid
Should the State legitimate entity be

The State is as human as errors can be
Should It excuse seek or new elections bid
True father protects for life his progeny

No citizen conscription thwarts and breathes free
Abjure violence to be made invalid
Should the State legitimate entity be

Since consensus derives from majority
Who made the individual a Candide
True father protects for life his progeny

Overlook crush even one nonentity
What right have men to govern any breed
Should the State legitimate entity be
True father protects for life his progeny
