Not All Men, a Villanelle

I do have to say, not all men
it must be clear. I am your ally
and you do risk losing a good ally today

In light of such extreme sentiments, then
while his actions I of course decry
I do have to say, not all men

I simply can’t be silent when
couched so angrily you lose support forby
and you do risk losing a good ally today

Such knowledge is indeed beyond your ken
and why criticise when we do try
I do have to say, not all men

Have you tried meditation, or zen?
That chap just there, you made him cry
and you do risk losing a good ally today

I was hit by a girl when I was ten
and your attention-seeking makes me sigh
I do have to say, not all men
and you do risk losing a good ally today.
