Treasure Island

Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Poly-amorous relationships


The female scorpion takes forty eight hours
To get arousal for the same partner
But is ready in a hour and a half
If the sexual partner is a stranger.
The sexual drive dead in the old couple
Gets renewed when paired with the new ones.

Sex suffers a lot from monogamy
And monogamy is undoable though.
To be desirable is the goal of life,
Which is not addressed in monogamy.
Monogamy cannot be dispensed with
For its guarantee and ownerships.

The elite struck a way and brought about
The poly-amorous relationships,
Which are enacted with the knowledge and
Tacit consents of everyone involved.
As husbands and wives they roam in the days
And go out reaching lovers in the nights.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
