Everyone’s Business (Poetry Form 3: Villanelle

I bloody hate villanelles. They’re easy to do but nigh on impossible to do well.
I’m also not too struck with the idea that my right to marry should be thrown out to the public for consultation.
So voila.

A consultation! Throw the question wide!
Should we give same sex couples marriage rights?
It’s time to let the populace decide!

Is it unfair when some have rights denied,
Like separate bathroom stalls for blacks and whites?
A consultation! Throw the question wide!

We’ll ask the whole of Britain to confide
In us, democracy reaches new heights!
it’s time to let the populace decide

What’s best for same sex couples. Help to guide
Us, now equality is in their sights –
A consultation (throw the question wide)

Let’s hear each heterosexual groom and bride
Give their opinion on those same sex rites
It’s time to let the populace decide.

Are same sex couples equal, should they hide
Their love, forego their wedding days and nights?
A consultation! Throw the question wide!
It’s time to let the populace decide!
