Mango And Men Are The Same! - Poem by V.Muthu Manickam

Few mangoes have big seed, making the pulp area little
Like few men who lead a life belittle!

Few mangoes have small seed, making the pulp area large
Like few men who lead a life, to usefully emerge!

Few mangoes look colorful but taste badly
Like few men looking smart but behaving madly!

Few mangoes do not look to lure but are delicious
Like few men who look irreverent but by heart, pious!

Few mangoes may emit good smell but taste badly
Like few men who looks lordly but act wildly!

Few mangoes don’t smell temptingly but taste delightfully
Like few men who look like naïve but behave purposefully!

Looks of men may lure you to get blame
For mangoes and men are the same!
