Chaste Still They Are. - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Stigma attached to infidelity
Is fizzling out with guilt feeling lying low,
Among the middle aged couples,
With easy access from modern devices.
Marriage is still valid for the child care,
Identity and property transfer.
Transcendence in sex is sought to regain Thrills that they miss from their partners gone stale.

For a night stand, for a fling or for intimacy
Partners give each other moving spaces
With tacit understanding for crossing floors,
Ensuring that it is not for progeny.

Outwardly the couples are respectable.
Inwardly they cross with mutual consents.
They don’t consider each other unchaste
As adultery sanctioned is no adultery.
