Tale Weaver – #295 – Crime Fighter – 1st October

In this ruthless world, who do we call?

Justice for all, crime fighters we need

Sycophants, hypocrites, all in a brawl

Turtleman, Ironman, small or tall

In the end they trump with speed

In this ruthless world, who do we call?

Democratic society we crave for all

Don’t deny them their rights, as agreed

Sycophants, hypocrites, all in a brawl

Sad and sorrow no more in the long haul

There’s hope, crime fighters in the lead

In this ruthless world, who do we call?

Wonder Woman, Kent, Peter or Paul

With their help, crimes severely impede

Sycophants, hypocrites, all in a brawl

They promise us no harm to befall

That life could be fair and great indeed

In this ruthless world, who do we call?

Sycophants, hypocrites, all in a brawl*

A Villanelle is a nineteen-line poem consisting of a very specific rhyming scheme: aba aba aba aba aba abaa.

The first and the third lines in the first stanza are repeated in alternating order throughout the poem, and appear together in the last couplet (last two lines).
