Treasure Island

Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

Love of the lady of pleasure!


Both the flame of the lamp
…………..and friendship of the whore
If you analyze, are not different;

Flame of the lamp goes off
…………..When the ghee in the lamp dries
and becomes empty;

Love of the lady of pleasure also goes off,
…………..When your wealth dwindles!

விளக்கொளியும் வேசையர் நட்பும் இரண்டும்

By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
