Amen

the whip descends again and again
priests and politicians consult
at prayers end, will she say Ďamení

who decides, lords or countrymen
shamans of the occult
the whip descends again and again

pain spreads like carcinogen
helpless struggle without result
at prayers end, will she say Ďamení

no rescue by brave cavalrymen
kings and courtesans exult
the whip descends again and again

conversation and laughter in the den
witnesses in a state of frenzied tumult
at prayers end, will she say Ďamení

scapegoat squeals like a peahen
thoughts and speech beyond difficult
the whip descends again and again
at prayers end, will she say Ďamení

Author's Note
Started out as an attempt to write a bdsm villanelle, but evolved into a darker more political piece. Weird how the mind works....
