Walking Away

A Villanelle

Andy Earl/Johnny Cash~Walking Away


Day to day struggles, no relief in sight

The option maybe to walk away

Alas, we shall not give up on the Good fight


Our burden is heavy, in trying to make things right

Tenacity and fortitude required in our verbal swordplay

Day to day struggles, no relief in sight


Our enemies will never feel contrite

They are of flesh and blood, destruction is underway

Alas, we shall not give up on the Good fight


The whitening of America, that is their delight

Egregiously using the potter’s clay

Day to day struggles, no relief in sight


We must band together, a chain of acolytes

There is strength in numbers for this morality play

Alas, we will not give up on the Good fight


We will be relentless to scourge away this blight

Our voices will sing, a corps de ballet

Day to day struggles, no relief in sight

Alas, we will not give up on the Good fight
