A Spirit And Them. - Poem by Veeraiyah Subbulakshmi

She was cute, energetic and young,
possessed by the spirit and she sang,
The same old movie song that her dead lover liked,
Every new moon day she become irked,
Sparkling eyes of her twinkled in the starless nights,
Talked like a man and ate like a man,
She used to sing the famous Tamil song,

‘On the banks of the lake,
A lady walks,
Lady Peahen, please stop,
Let us talk and walk together'

While the head of the nuns,
Who was a good, evil spirit chaser,
Was busy with the holy cross and holy water,
Our friend continued to sing and clatter,
and the nun forced her to hold the holy cross,
And sprinkled the holy water on her head,
The girl never stopped singing and smiling,
The same old movie song to the sister,
Who was bold and enterprising in nature,
She ate everything raw, plant origin not animal,
When The sister ordered the evil spirit,
In the name of the Father, the son and the holy spirit,
to get out of her to rest in the Neem trees,
The trees, the Hindus plant in front of their homes,
The sister thought the guest had left quietly,
The girl started to snore heavily
The Sister dismissed herself voluntarily,
The male spirit smiled and winked at other girls regularly,
While they peeped through the blanket fearfully,
In the middle of the moonless night, monthly.
