My Head Hurts
 




French Revolution decapitated
with total terminal velocity,
the streets of Paris stained with crimson gore.
Sophisticated now, more 'civilized',
we herald bright aristocrats as lords,
placing them in government to mentor,
permit them dictate, juggling our cash.

Some urging new reforms: Return the lash,
God expelled from schools (He should be centre),
accept with grace what puppet king accords.
When some revolt (and who can be surprized?)
then men collect in lynch mobs to make law.
Eye for eye and tooth for tooth atrocity.
My head hurts...it's simply complicated.



A Mirror image sonnet




The Mirror image sonnet follows the principles
of most sonnets, having 14 lines,
usually in Iambic Pentameter
and with a rhyme pattern of:
a-b-c-d-e-f-g, g-f-e-d-c-b-a.
(thanks for the 'recipe', Jean)
