When devils look at with their own eyes
that man has destroyed hills and mountains,
burnt forests and rice fields,
poisoned rivers and seas,
polluted the blue sky by dangerous radiations,
littered his own cheerful life and longing heart
with drugs and disgusting lifestyle,
killed each other,
spat on Heaven and urinated on Hell,
ridiculed his own Lord,
and stripped gods to the skin,
They are really in a hurry to run away
from getting involved in
and will not accept any responsibilities
for such doings.
Even the devils are so worried about
what will happen to man’s fate
for it does not ever occur to them at all
to do like what man has done.
