Crucial Forty - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

At forty a woman is threatened
Of losing ever her charm and
To test her worthiness, is inclined,
Edging to adultery at hand.

Above forty a man is warned
Of his age and weary of his wife.
To test his vim he is emboldened,
Waging adultery in wiles.

Potent woman often slips.
Virulent man often hooks.

Law is to transgress,
Code is to infringe,
When instincts spurt.
