Coveted Clan (A Villanelle)

The clan which breaks the drumming rhythm’s stride

Cannot be ceased by mortal’s buzzing talk;

How close this family does here reside!

.

Not ere have mortal men thus, aching, tried

To replicate in mind’s terrene, tame stock

This clan which breaks the drumming rhythm’s stride.

.

Deciphered riddle, billboards boasting wide,

Directives draw, yet fated, few, to walk

Too close; this family does near reside!

.

Do question you the newest edict’s guide?

Then, find the heart which, daring, bursts wall’s block,

The clan which breaks the drumming rhythm’s stride.

.

Unnerved, the tariff’s smoke does, bitter, chide

Invaluable the cold, tremendous shock

To cross the family which here resides.

.

Conjoined wanton weight of pow’r collides,

Since unrestrainable, the mammoth rock

Of clan which breaks the drumming rhythm’s tide.

How close this family does here abide!
