Shiva's Quandary

in far away Orion
amidst its imploding super nova
the cosmic hunter
with his sagacious third eye
ponders over
the fate of three demons
terrorizing our universe

the lord's compassion
is the demons' amulet,
as the scales of justice
tip away
from dharma
seeding their destruction

to open
or not to open
his lethal third eye:
the question,

to annihilate
them or not:
his quandary
