Scenic Irony! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

The youthful girls who take their fathers
in the pillion of their scooty
during incessant rainy weather
look really like responsible fathers!

But, the fathers sitting quietly
on the pillion look like little children
who go to school! Scenic irony
while the parents become the senior citizen!

காட்சிப் பிழை

தங்கள் ஸ்கூட்டிகளில்
