(a triolet)



I pale to see this lion's *****
this exhibition of male pride
its eye glistens like a gold coin
I blush to see this lion's *****,

I'm in his lair he wills us joined
I purr now that I am outside
this lion's glistening gold coin
submissive to, O your male pride...

I've insane rage inside it kills
O comfort me with Mother love
its wills will me to do self ills
i've insane rage inside it kills,

O Mother mine please hold me still
gently gentle me free from fear
i've insane rage inside it kills
O comfort me my Mother dear.

This rage will will me underground
dear gentle me with Mother love
down on Earth i am so hell bound
this rage will will me underground,

i might reach peace, deep underground
i'm teetering just one shove,
this rage will will me underground
dear gentle me with mother love.

I called you came, you comfort me
though rage still wills me underground
you gentled me to let it be
i called you came you comfort me,

those future years i feared, you see
i wasn't shoved i just jumped down
you called i came you comfort me
together now, deep underground.
Triolet X 3.
A passing moon and empty silhouette
keep me company this early morn walk,
their quiet company, a silent vignette.
A passing moon and empty silhouette
embrace longing of this hopeful gazette,
yet bid adieu to my faint solo talk.
A passing moon and empty silhouette
keep me company this early morn walk.

While you are asleep upstairs my little loves and the big one too,
should I watch Thomas, Jane Austen or Arthurian witches?
Chased by unconscious thoughts, the screen beckons to expel the blue.
While you are asleep upstairs my little loves and the big one too,
Netflix proposes in the stillness of the night and I miss you,
bubblewrapped under my ribs I hold our evening's joys and riches
while you are asleep upstairs, my little loves and the big one too,
should I watch Thomas, Jane Austen or Arthurian witches?
Triolet ABaAabAB, on waking up at night and switching on the TV for it to propose Thomas the tank, which was the last thing the children had watched.
For, Silence she chose, to let time reveal the truth,
Clandestine promises she kept, not to get misconstrued,
When fear in believing people, strangled her to death,
For, silence she chose, to let time reveal the truth,
Blind love and compassion she had bestowed with strewth,
On the one, who gave back false hopes with betrayal, all to feud,
For, Silence she chose, to let time reveal the truth,
Clandestine promises she kept, not to get misconstrued.
The triolet is perfect for this kind of repetition, because the first line of the poem is used 3 times and the second line is used twice. If you do the math on this 8-line poem, you'll realize there are only 3 other lines to write: 2 of those lines rhyme with the first line, the other rhymes with the second line.
