In honour of Louis Vuitton Night at the Mercury Cafe

Villanelle of Anarchism and Decadence

Away from order, things will fall

Towards this condition of decline.

And when it began, who can recall?

What revolution can one forestall?

A turning serves mostly to remind:

Away from order, things will fall.

The anxious cling and caterwaul

Without the edge, there is no define

And when it began, who can recall?

It does not profit to bawl

over what is yours and what is mine

Away from order, things will fall

Down on the ground we can only crawl

Until we tire, relax and recline

And when it began, who can recall?

Art, leadership and morals, all

in a period of deterioration divine

Away from order, things will fall

And when it began, who can recall?

    Third post of the day.
    For shame.

    Anton will not apologize.
    Flouting the rules for a poem about anarchy,
    obviously, was meant to satirize.
