Villanelle: The Dilemma of the Non-Violent – 7

Who has not wished somebody battered to death
The janitor one’s lawyer an ex-bed fellow
Feel in dark recesses mocking monkey breath

Who has not shoved the blame for one’s set-back birth
Neighbour wife having a ball daily down below
Who has not wished somebody battered to death

Who has not tossed and turned on how to cheat Death
The junkie the usurer Santa Claus on furlough
Feel in the dark recesses mocking monkey breath

Feel the heart tighten thoughts of those under wreath
Those who toiled luckless never to see theirs grow
Who has not wished somebody battered to death

Find after all wierd monsters deep in one’s depth
Break out some smooth summer’s day dark as glow
Feel in dark recesses mocking monkey breath

Some Gandhi hounded by lust reduced to wraith
Invite violence into one’s own sleepy hollow
Who has not wished somebody battered to death
Feel in dark recesses mocking monkey breath
