Letters Not To Stay - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

‘There are no better satires than letters.’
Go through the bundle of letters written
A decade ago by your erstwhile friends.
Look at the pile of letters you have got
From your sister bef’re she quarreled with you.
Get down at the scrolls of your beloved son
Before he turned against you on wealth suit.
Vows, love, promises, gratitude and trust-
How queerly they all on those letters
Laugh at me, mock me and knock me down!
I wish no paper had more than a month life.
I wish no ink had more than a week life.
Let us be safe from going through the past.
There are no better satires than letters.
