Disaster Of Matrimony - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

The system of matrimony crumbles;
The virtue of monogamy crumbles.
A trust worthy marital life in vogue
Will no longer be a guarantee.
Partners shift, lured by erotic pleasure,
At the cost of durable partnerships.
Each couple lives with uncertainty.
Prosperity and promiscuity
Are twin goals people are madly after.
Once one’s sexual cycle comes to an end,
Man and woman will be left high and dry
To exit with out a committed soul to nurse.
