Do You Agree? - Poem by Sumita Datta

Sugar is sweet
Sweet is honey
But more than that
One feels sugary
His very first salary…

Coffee is bitter
Bitter is bear…
More bitter is when a prostitute
Faces her first customer

Salt is salty
Salty is sea water
More than that one feels salty
Under the sun,
Waiting for other…

Tamarind is sour,
Sour is grape…
More than that
Sour is the situation
When a girl is being raped…

Chili is hot
So hot is Indian spice
But, you become hotter
When your kid lies…
