The power of the Beast

The Beast exults in power got.
Empowering are almost all.
They want to be unfettered not.

They really want to be a lot.
They let smart gumption freely fall.
The Beast exults in power got.

They want to be considered hot.
The kindred way they don’t recall.
They want to be unfettered not.

If green to be they feel they ought
desire is to being tall.
The Beast exults in power got.

They are amused by any plot,
their deepest wish to climb a wall.
They want to be unfettered not.

For charity they have no thought.
If so they had, they would be small.
The Beast exults in power got.
They want to be unfettered not.



At dVerse today, Grace asks for poems in the form of villanelles.

  2. It's hard to make 1-syllable end rhymes work, as they sound like a sudden stop, but with some careful sentence manoevring, you succeeded, well done.

  6. This villanelle sounds like a warning that really should be heeded....like we really should take notice and fetter that Beast!

  7. "They want to be unfettered not" is an interesting refrain. It seems like a double negative but probably your intent to make it more effective.
