Marriages Are Made In Heaven - Poem by RAVIKIRAN ARAKKAL

Marriages like the registry
Are made in heaven,
With the relatives, friends
Making earthly arrangements
Of beds, flowers, wedding suits,
Feasts, ceremonies, bethrotals
All complete to make
The pair unite in sheer bliss
Living, copulating for
Indescribable years of harmony,
Love, making children,
But now that seperations,
Divorces in huge numbers,
The wedding God and staff
Having a busy schedule,
Late night work of remarriages,
With enough confusions,
Complication, errors to boot
To the normal workstyle
Of yesterages where
People seldom married
A second, third, fourth time,
Emanating curses from the god
And overstressed staff
Who imagined to copy
The system in heavens too.
