Poem is about the seeming rain of evil over good in the isle of Trinidad.



Descends the ominous clouds and spilling rains

over the dead filled land like blood

flood the unperturbed corbeaus over the caucuses,

and screams are heard,

as if carried by the howling winds:

ancestors and mothers alike joining in a stinging harmony,

as if to awaken the seemingly sleeping Gods,

to cast their spirit over the steeping land;

the now precarious land of Trinidad,

like a healing balm,

like a raging peace

ready to do battle:

the unyielding elements:

nefarious and ominous alike .

Now demons gather almost illusive forces

like a dark grand apparition,

a spectre like illusion,

spurred and angered by the seeping harmonies

and the secret prayers of faithful bosoms.

Spurred and angered!

Growling and feet stamping, timing

the thunderclaps,

and lightning lighting

flashing their dark faces

evil in the dire valleys prepares for battle,

as if they could sense

the waking slumber of the Gods

devoid of fear,

decrepit in and of mind

they march on,

toward the once holy Trinity hill,

where they know angels first descends.

They march on!

commanded by dark intent and evil will.

to reflect the ominous omen of the skies.

But behold! the skies now burst

as if to shower their prediction

and heaven's army, comes

floating through like silver shadowed saviours;

some on flying horses,

others winged chimeras and golden arrows

disguised as harps.

Their glowing halos and auras

provide a light to dark sky,

blinds demons' wretched eye

like Sun to a vampire,

and the demons breathe fire

from a heart of ice,

and they fire deadly arrows piercing

and guns and magical forces fiercing

from the palms of their hands,

unceasing and unleashing,

yet still Heaven's army descends

some seemingly injured

by the unexpected strength evil sends:

Evil sends Good a strong message.

Yet Good perseveres reaches land shielding

with halos gleaming and brigthened auras

like magical forcefields

returns fire

their golden arrows

piercing five for the price of one,

sends the demons scanting , scattering


signs of fear now emerge,

illusions of imperviousity purged

like the dark and tenebrous clouds,

abates and dissipates, negates

and glimpses of the gleaming Sun

sends its streak evil undone

to support heaven's soldiers

ever burns demons' skin

screams are heard within

as victory for Good is surely nigh.
