Where have all the Rakshas gone?
That ancient powerful race?
Gone at the zenith of their glory–
Vanished without a trace?
Kumbakarn was sloth personified- he slept his life away;
Bakasur craved human flesh every new moon day.
Enormous wealth did not preclude greed and avarice–
They had health and strength and intellect–
And every single vice!
In the National Geographic some trace I thought I’d find–
But the newspapers showed me that the monsters lived
In depraved Humankind!
