A Marriage Function! - Poem by Ramesh T A

With the marriage of my son waiting to be held
On the third of May I am still trying to get mood!

Formalities of the marriage being so much that
One loses the mood to enjoy doing it with joy...!

All kinds of solemnity involved make marriages
Look to be drowsy, dull and damn thing to do so!

For performing marriage function one or two days
One million rupees seem to be spent inviting all....!

All get tired in the process of conducting all in order
Before an end is put to the drama like procedures....!

Dresses, jewels, feasts, auspicious musicians, priests,
Elders, guests, hosts, relatives and friends need care!

Finding faults is easier than planning all to execute
In order to make marriage function see flying colours!
