Towards Better Democracy

Good words, well written, better the world. Good literature betters the world immeasurably.

Devil take the hindmost


Devil take the hindmost

Devil take the hindmost, the lame boy limps at the rear
Tanks wither, solids are gelded
Nude soldiers mince on the parade ground
Leaden butterflies swim in golden seas
The Cats’ Orchestra barks in unison. Trills the choir
Satellites weave tepid tapestries in the universe
The cauldron bakes onions, splutters confusion, and stinks of fish
The horizon ebbs and claps. And slaps you in the eye
The crimson parlour imprisons the dainty Queen
The axman picks his teeth and smiles in kindness
The vegetation stretches, the rice talk endless
The honeymoon is over, the devil in attendance
Let’s join the dance.
