Bachelor's woe


“The girls never die unwed” legend says
Have you ever witnessed even old lady?
Who has not taken to nuptial even lately?
This is matter always talked about jokingly

A man dies bachelor
With so much titles and honor
People will call him chronic
Some one may address as manic too

He is not welcome
To any house and allowed to come
At least where girls are more
He will be restricted there

What unfortunate man he is?
What has been his fault in this?
Oh My God, help him out
So his bachelorhood is not talked about

Thee is plain embargo
He will net be allowed to go
And witness nice ponds
Where ladies wash cloths

If it is orthodox village
Hope his life will be over with age
He will die old man and be called unwed
Life spent wholly for the girl till he was dead

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
