Having A Lover - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Having a lover is not having pills
When ill, nor tonic when unwell,
Nor juice for thirst, nor food for hunger.
Having lover is having ginger
For appetite, liquor for lethargy
And a Viagra for man’s function
In his fantasy in bed with his wife
And an opium for woman’s orgasm
In fantasy when in bed with her husband.
By having a lover beside your spouse
You can eat your food you’re weary of.
The stigma of the extra marital is slain

    couple making love will not eat if you invited them.
    and those who are eating, will not make love when it is suggested!
    nice and differeny theme friend!
