The Politics of Verisimilitude. A Villanelle Poem by Jim Dunlap.

Poetry Life and Timesmoi(1)

 

An ill-thought-out statement can pack quite a punch,
So it’s best to be careful while speaking:
What you say at breakfast … can eat you for lunch. *
 
A bare-knuckle sandwich might be what you munch
If your words cause inordinate ‘freaking’:
An ill-thought-out statement can pack quite a punch.
 
Unwelcome visitors might join you for brunch
If bad thoughts from your mouth exit streaking:
What you say at breakfast … can eat you for lunch.
 
The state of the world, at last forced to the crunch,
Throws a stench that’s quite powerfully reeking:
What you eat for breakfast may inconvenience your lunch.
 
Of the species on earth, we’re the worst of the bunch,
And we’ll likely not find what we’re seeking:
Mother Nature could just simply CANCEL our lunch.
 
No ‘bang’ and no ‘whimper’ can make such a scrunch
As the blast where the fuel line was leaking.
An ill-thought-out statement can pack quite a punch:
What you mis-said at breakfast … can eat you for lunch.
