Oh Woman! - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Woman, are you a demon
Or beguiling heaven
To us men, who like orphans
Beg for your love and concern?

Woman, are you panther
Or a nourishing mother
To us men, who, weighed with
Fear, are to get to your shelter?

Woman, are you deadly
Or energizingly lovely
To us men, who toil and boil,
On cloud nine to mount you?

We are at loss to understand
And in stress to amend
So you we revolve around
And round to kiss the ground.
