Fear Can Rule The Tendency To Rape Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.


Man robs from hunger; otherwise also.
With mind sick, he does; as a sport he does.
Man rapes from hunger; otherwise also.
With mind sick, he does; as a sport he does.

Having sex is a sin, or an offense,
Man's possessiveness over woman,
And men acting as moral policing
Will help illicit or forceful sex.

Rape is as controllable as murder.
Both haven't been eliminated ever since.
Both are impulsive and calculative.
Self education is most essential.

Both occur as hit and run, unnoticed
And unpredictably, with lust or revenge.
Without fear for sure, harsh punishment,
Tendency to do these will not come down.
