Doomed To Fail?

Posted in villanelle by maggie on 2009/05/17

How much more shit before we learn
all our attempts are doomed to fail?
Quit poking me, this one's your turn.

We ought abandon or adjourn
this idiotic twisted trail.
How much more shit before we learn?

Is this where I get to discern
that every oath's assembled frail?
Quit poking me, this one's your turn.

Muggy clouds around us churn -
our thoughts get drowned in trash and hail.
How much more shit before we learn?

Should I bring along some poems to burn
for dragging us beyond this gale?
Quit poking me, this one's your turn.

We waste through every scrap we earn
before the bill goes in the mail.
How much more shit before we learn?
Quit poking me, this one's your turn.
