Today, a repeat of my Serio-Comic poetry

Walking along the Golden Gate North America’s connecting strait Was the shiny inviting pate Of a cocky bald gent from Kent Moving towards the Bay of San Francisco Unable to resist, a playful li’l mosquito With an intent for amusement Bit rather deep and tight And promptly away it flew from sight...

Curse Protects Chastity in this Hindu Mythological Story

Just as a solitary blemish ruins the brightest garment, so can one slip in character not be compensated by whatever remains of it. Here is a story from the Hindu mythology, Ramayana which proves the point beautifully. There is more to Ravana, the demon king than his role as Rama’s (the reincarnation...

The Gruesome Happenings in the House of Atreus

( Aeschylus’ “The Orestia” is a tale of gore, technically a tragedy but it does not end purely in hopelessness, but on an upbeat note.

Faustus' Last Soliloquy Just Before he is Carried Away to Hell
