The Exorcist..!

Rating: 5.0
In the chosen corner of seclusion
Chanting resonant incantations in reclusion
Mincing the red calcified turmeric
With her left hand uttering words of magic
The sorceress sprayed a fistful
On the possessed girl who sat in a pose wistful;
Smoke rose like a spirit and diffused leeward
Changing shapes and symbols wayward
Over the head of the helpless victim,
Commanded to keep up the posture prim;
Shining sweat gathered on the former's face
Laced with red and patterned ash trace;
With a stiff body and a louder scream
And a swathful of branches of neem
She patted flat on the other's head,
And sprinkled powders white and red;
While the latter begin to swing,
As if controlled by the spirit on the wing
And stopped stiffly as the other did flick
Her body with a crooked snake-like stick
Uttering eerie words with a horrible sound,
As others stood in reverence, and spell-bound;
The powered one instantly sprang
And wrenching, danced wildly and wrang;
The timid onlookers were awed and cowed,
Helplessly baffled at the screech loud;
The old magician swiped her back
Bringing off a scorpion, big and black
Which evidently had stung her with venom pack;
Wriggling, yelping, she rolled on the ground
Her hands and legs turning on pivot round;
The rest were gasping, bewildered and shocked
With her subject like an exorcised spirit
Neared her to pacify with words albeit
A little kid, hardly a lad, in playful mood
Darted across and with neat fingers two,
Held the fierce intruder by tail without ado;
He enjoyed it with an open mouthed grin
And waved his little body with a victor's win;
Concern made the anxiety- favoured few,
Rush the convulsing hag for treatment due.
