Bacchus’s Villanelle

Discipline is fleeting away with the mead
When we sound-off about this and that
Will I continue or fail or succeed

Perhaps it is the booze or maybe this creed
Might be the company’s blithering chat
Discipline is fleeting away with the mead

What is it really to be high-speed
The other choice like them is flat
Will I continue or fail or succeed

We certainly live by Bacchus’s creed
Set this against that as an acrobat
Discipline is fleeting away with the mead

Falling all out is something to heed
So when bottom came we just sat
Will I continue or fail or succeed

Sit up and stand as now we are freed
To return where we left, and back to all that,
Discipline is fleeting away with the mead

Will I continue or fail or succeed
