If One Is Found To Be Guilty Of Defaming Words As A Chronic Drunkard! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

If one is found to be guilty of defaming words
…as a chronic drunkard of toddy and liquor,

he is treated indifferently and all his qualities
…as being respected well by everyone,

his respectable deeds and the fame he acquired
…from the virtuous people

as ‘he is the clear minded intellectual’
…shall swiftly leave him forever!
