Outsourcing Love - Poem by kp. shashidharan

In a world where only
Money matters
Buzzword is outsourcing
Business of body, mind, intellect
Business of life, love and joy of living!
Engaging men, women
Transvestites and babies
Bundled or segregated
For time-sharing!

No space, no time
In life but for money!
Isn't love outsourcing
An offshoot of life?

In the hurry worry
Hassles of modern life
We profess
The age old profession!

We have been there since ages
In Babylonia, Mesopotamia
Ancient Greece, Rome, India!

Ancient world knew
Bible, Koran talked about us
Wasn't there sacred marriage
Wasn't there 'offer' of us to Gods?
Woman waited
In the temple of Aphrodite'
To have intercourse with stranger!
