Cinquain


Paris

Preach hate
to broken youth; 
indoctrinate the violence;
paradise at the end of it.
Paris. 

  
George Szirtes (see Links) recently covered the subject of the cinquain, a five line form made famous by Adelaide Crapsey. My cinquain 'Paris' was posted today as a 'reply' on Magyar Haiku (see Links).
