# MAY BE AN ANTI WOMAN POEM


what a relationship
this is
even today i heard
a man say
AS A MAN
when you become unproductive
when you stop earning
even if...
even if....you have all along
provided her without....
asking her what she brought
just when
you stop bringing
well..you seal it then
THE RELATIONSHIP
poor me
i never knew it then

SHE SEEMS TO BE SAYING
YOUR MONEY IS OURS
MY MONEY IS ONLY MINE

    'MAY BE AN ANTI WOMAN POEM'...not really so...an anti poem against a particular woman...in our tradition after marriage the girl is supposed to go and live with the boy's family...if she finds no support except indifference and negligence from her husband or his folks or even surprisingly in most families the children then there arises the problem...no normal woman will go against an affectionate husband talking on money 'yours and mine'...affection's accountability is not only material but also truly a loving heart...thanks for this nice poem SL (Report) Reply

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
