Demon-Crazy


Yes, they are honourables
Yet they are crazy
Crazy for violence
Using the hallow chambers as rings
Exchanging in fistcuffs
Like Hogan Bassey and Dick Tiger
They are skilful in the 'Rambo art'
Than the real hero actor

Yes, they are distinguish legislators
Yet methink they are insane
They are as brutal as demon
Brutal against each other
Brutal against the citizens
They have no mercy for peace
With their retinues of thugs
They kill, maim and destroy
Yet they claim to be democrats
Where are the true democrats
These ones are demon-crazy

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
