Do And Don’t - Poem by Udaya Pant

Whenever you want
Whatever you want to do
They say, “Don’t”.

When you are ready
To join them for their plan
They actually don’t

Whoever you want to invite
Anyone you want to visit
They generally don’t

You seem to want to avoid
Any bitter conversation
They certainly don’t

You want to be with them
After their long accusation
They then don’t

You want to read a book
Or write poetry or prose
They make sure, you don’t

All these and many more things
If you don’t do on instructions
They accuse, “you don’t”

When they want it all
They say, “You better do”
That’s what most wives do!
