Different Scales - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

I like him. He, too, in turn.
We are in love. Good!

I like him. He is not so.
Still I like him. Better!

I like him. He hates me.
Still I like him. The best!

I love her. She, too, in turn.
We are in love. Good!

I love her. She avoids.
Still I pursue. Bad!

I love her. She despises.
Still I pester. Worse!

Love between same genders;
Love between opposite genders;
What a reversion!

When sex differs
Grades invert.
Why?
For introspection.
