Villanelles… and The Blues… why not?

11 Feb 2016 – Villanelle Blues

Lawd, I can smell ’em stirrin’ up their stews,
made straight from scratch – it do not come from no can!
I got dem cesspool runnin’ over blues.

You thought you’d settled up and paid yor dues?
Another dish is comin’, hot from the pan!
Lawd, I can smell ’em stirrin’ up their stews.

Unjust desserts you’re gonna plainly rue,
cooked over burning crosses hatred’s fanned.
I got dem cesspool runnin’ over blues.

New, younger faces but the same ‘ol crew.
More modern names but it’s the same ‘ol brand!
Lawd, I can smell ’em stirrin’ up their stews.

A second helpin’ for us chosen few!
It doesn’t matter if that meat’s been banned.
We got dem cesspool runnin’ over blues.

Enough already – I’m a-fixin’ to spew!
The very stink of it is fillin’ this land.
Lawd, I can smell ’em stirrin’ up their stews.
I got dem cesspool runnin’ over blues.
