Judge Not Peripherally. - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

A foe with a bow
Will turn less harmful
Than a friend with a bouquet will.

A man with a frown
Will turn less hurtful
Than a woman with a smile will.

A woman exhibiting
Is less vulnerable
Than a woman who is modest.

A flatterer is less true
The smiling face is not the helping face.
The sweet tongue is limbless.
