No good deed…

(a villanelle)

The car is looking older now
It has another scrape down low.
You really shouldn’t ask me how
It got that ding upon its bow,
That battle-scar that makes me know
The car is looking older now.
Don’t say I drove it like a plow
Across the parking lot – Oh no,
You really shouldn’t!  Ask me how
I made a well-intentioned vow
To feed my sister’s cat.  And, so
The car is looking older now,
At least she will not have a cow
Because her cat’s lost in the snow.
You really shouldn’t ask me how
I got these deep lines in my brow.
Just say, what’s done is done.  For though
The car is looking older now
You really shouldn’t ask me how.
