Mystery, misery!


Mystery, misery!
With the lust in your mind leading you to rape women.

Love!
It's so beautiful;

Rape!
It's so ugly;

Mystery, misery!
For, the lust that was in you had led you to rape a woman.

Out, hideout!
At the time of the day;

Meat, eat!
At the hour of the dark;

Rape!
In the Devil's Restaurant.

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
