A Social Evil - Poem by Sandra Martyres

The desperate man
Just got rid of
His only daughter
Her crime
She is a woman
His reason
He has no money
To offer as dowry
Her problem
No bridegroom
Was willing to
Marry her without
Any compensation
His solution
Get rid of the problem
This was reported in
A local newspaper
