An Intelligent Couple - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

A robust, fair and modest woman,
A mother of two little children,
Entertained men to her bedroom
With the consent of her husband
To realize building a big house,
With no breach of trust between them.
The house built, she stopped the business.
Thus they have elevated their status.

    very unfortunate poem, indeed. What is the use of having properties and fortunes, when the dignity of the soul and self respect are sold? (Report)Reply
