Dark or fair | Sunday Observer

Dark or fair

Under the beautiful fair masks they wear
Lies their satanic dark face
To the world they are good and fair
But belong to the vicious dark race
Cheating grumbling finding others faults
Amorally gathering heaps of demerits to their vaults
Like the moon outdoes the darkness of a thick black night
Good conquer the bad with the light of good deeds bright
Mild thoughts of the good attest their innocence
Underlies their kind ways of care
Conquering injustice good arise with tolerance
Like diamonds people fair at heart so rare
Darkness or fairness not from inheritance
To which you belong knows your heart evidence
