The Villanelle of Maker's Arms Thought offers up plenty of firm foundation, And often just enough of fertile ground, Upon which to commence major creation. We wait patiently through oration and quotation For formulation of mental notes so profound, And thoughts to offer up enough firm foundation. And we build a fixation for communication, A demonstration of contemplation run aground Upon a pimple to commence minor creation. We throw the switch of reanimation, A recreation re-creation from burial ground That offers up enough mental foundation And scaffolded towers teetering in agitation, Like a metronome hand in perpetual rebound, Upon which we commence natural creation. Our constant derivation without deviation, Stinks like a festering, maggot-ridden flesh wound, But, still offers up a plethora of firm foundation Upon which to commence generic creation.
