For fans of The Night Angel Trilogy and The Lightbringer Series

A Villanelle on Modern Society I wrote last year in Literature.

Noone cares to heed the call

Noone cares to heed the call,

we run headlong to our demise.

As we rise, the world shall fall.

 

Big men watch as small men crawl,

they stand and hark to starving cries.

Noone cares to heed the call.

 

Rich men scheme to steal from all,

and poor men do believe their lies.

As we rise, the world shall fall.

 

A dream he dreant, to share with all, 

to one day see our nation's rise.

Noone cares to heed the call.

 

While soldiers fight through sandy halls,

we sit and watch them give their lives.

As we rise, the world shall fall.

 

The flood of Man destroys it all.

The world will die as people rise.

Noone cares to heed the call.

As we rise... The world shall fall.
