Fractured Villanelle

 Myth is perpetual

Racism is stalwart

The past is changeless and therefore everpresent

Princes leave their kingdom

To find their destined bride

The myth is perpetual.

But kingdom must approve the far-off  Bride

And the Bride must always be fair.

Racism is stalwart.

 She enters the kingdom

A descendant of the conquered

Myth is perpetual

The populace remembers the greatness of its conquerors

They remember their ancestors' burden

Racism is stalwart.

There is wrongness in the truest love

if the myth of race and empire demand the perpetual

Because the past is stalwart, changeless and everpresent
