"Blood Suckers From Hell"

"Blood Suckers From Hell"
by Jalaludin Rumi (1207-1273)

Rumi speaking to a crowd muses:

Watch out for those blood suckers from hell -
cause they're everywhere.

And the crowd wisely retorts:
"That sounds serious - what do they look like, any hints;
are they usually disguised?"

Rumi again: Yes, usually, they are awful tricky!

"How then to detect them?"

Well,
I have noticed
their eyes will narrow and their faces begin to squint
like prunes

if they hear good
poetry.

Walhydra's friend Wendiferous found this in a book they both use.

*teehee*
