The Devil Unleashes By Arrey Mbongaya Ivo

  1. 1. The Devil Unleashes by Arrey Mbongaya Ivo Fiends of lowliest skins and stations In the grumbling pits of smoking crackling Hellish bastions Are summarily summoned By the jealous over-whelmed Devil. Carion had spilled millions Of child lives in his earthly times Bakun had detonated acidic mercury upon The good spirits of Jupiter Leaving them squashed crushed and burnt Like rotten meat in the bellies of despicable scavengers. Anun had put a spell upon advantaged nations And whispered great leaders Into neglecting vulnerable nations O Anun! Medalled in to Satanic Glory as the Destroyer of the Poor baby flowers of Sudan The lilies of Ethiopia And the juices of the Congo. O Bakun! Moulded with loathe And the spitum from execrable Earthly vampires Sworn as fascist dictators in the unstable thirties. O Carion the mower Revered in East Hell as the symbol Of the Devil’s heartlessness Yes these and Ninety Seven others Plus twenty scientist monsters summoned In the smouldering Hellish Dark By the jealous Devil “O you despicable miscreants And yet sons of my hellish paradise Wrath in the gold of strengths beyond
  2. 2. The odes of biblical odes And the poetry of unskilful Tennyson Or the unworthy Okigbo Welcome to my inner abodes I charge you to attack, cut and destroy The caustic nonsense Heralded in all the plates As “The Steam Boat” Craft like worthy craft men and women Devices like geniuses To strike upon this unholy omen And that I may see chaos Yes chaos in the works of the Great Mysterious And spoil the raucous alleluia Now sang in all dimensions As efficiency and reverence In the works of the distasteful Steam Boat. Heresies and Delusions Delusions and Heresies Act now lest you Be sworn to be the lowliest Of rascally jackals in these quarters That I am Governor Lest you be Reduced to unrecognized Heaps of smouldered mess Leaking burnt wounds and flowing blood The rest of your endless days Here as the millions of lower species With little glory worth in these bastions That I am Governor. You shall now bear the Order ‘Destroyers from Inferno’” And the summoned fiends hurried to work
  3. 3. To diligently craft tools to destroy The steam Boat revered by all the spatial dimensions And beyond As connected to the Great Mysterious And with mysteries beyond The eleventh, twelfth and thirteenth dimensions And Beyond.
