Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Freshman - 1,155 Points (June 15,1942 / Aravayal, karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, South India)

The Election set a trend


Despite dismal performances,
The mule has been reelected
By the mixed population
Of horses and mules in the stable.

The whole mules voted for the mule.
The opponent horse lost the race.
The horses divided themselves
And voted on ideology.

The victory of the mule is
Due more to the racial backing
Than to the performance reckoning,
An ugly trend set for the first time.

Our life is twofold; Sleep hath its own world,
A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
