Unlooked-For - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

I received an e-mail from Devil de Morals.
'Hey! My dear pen-pusher you are just wasting the time,
Scribbling lot of nonsense and still you could not get a publisher.
Did you see the advertisement?
They published in the World paper immediate vacancies.
Post for the grave-diggers there, qualifications are not required it seems.
Only the personality and capability are mandatory.
I am sorry that I couldn't tell that I have already applied for you.
So do not get surprised once they call for you an interview.'
