Be Kind And Courteous To The Husband - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

Who / which is
supporting the elderly woman?

Is it the walker or the husband?

The walker never fails,

The husband sometimes forgets;

The walker never protests,

The husband sometimes protests

and raises his voice;

You can be rude to the walker,

But be kind and courteous to the husband.
