Treasure Island

Palas Kumar Ray

(India)

Devil Rules


Devil reigns, reigning,
mind, heart and soul.

In his extended Kingdom
Rules implied

don't Be Honest
don't Be Kind
don't Give up lust.

Love
Faith
Trust
should cease
To Exist.

Or be penalized.
Penalty of pain
poverty and shame
prolonged despair
grief and sorrow
will be imposed

to teach you
a lesson
to be borne
in your mind
heart and soul
Devil Rules.

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
