Costly Joke On Condolence - Poem by Rajaram Ramachandran

“She wasn’t, to you alone, a mother
But to all the villagers, a mother, ”
Condoled a senior villager.

An idiot was observing this.
Next, he went to friend’s house
To condole his wife’s demise.

“She wasn’t, to you alone, a wife
But to all the villagers, a wife.”
He was beaten up and ran for his life.
