Villanelle of Voices Overheard in Payback 2017
(obviously, the “we” here does not speak for me.)
Rights for you? A damned disgrace.
So, why not just shut-the-“f” up
as we put you in your place
because we hate your [insert] face–
we leave the blank–you fill it up–
rights for you a damned disgrace.
Oh, maybe we’ll allow you space
to overflow, then wash, our cup,
as we put you in your place–
Your proffered talent? Total waste!
Don’t tell us that our science sucks–
rights for you are damned. Disgrace,
to us, but egg on face.
Ho ho, ha ha, it up we yuck
while we put you in your place.
Don’t care if our cum leaves a trace–
at least “true” rape should shut you up.
Rights for you a damned disgrace–
just let us put you in your place.
For Rommy’s prompt on Real Toads to write in the voice of a villain. The picture (mine) doesn’t really go with the poem, but I am using it because I find that reading books is about all that gives relief in these depressing days. Obviously, the “we” voice doesn’t speak for me here. Hopefully, it doesn’t speak for very many in actuality–
