She Is Nothing But The ‘god Of Death’ That Goes Behind The Husband! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

As and when the husband went to the neighboring place,
If a woman,

who has big attractive eyes like the sword that cuts,
after taking nice bath with applying turmeric paste over face,

by applying eye paste to beautify her eyes resembling the fish,
getting rid, with her hand, of the buzzing bees which

come to get honey from the flowers on one of the five types
of hairdo that resemble the dark black sky,

loiters out of her house here and there,
She is nothing but the ‘God of death’ that goes behind the husband

without obviously known to him and attacks him with armor
made up of a metallic club with a long handle to kill him!

    Nice write! Infidelity is anathema and against God's will amongst couples. Thanks for sharing (Report) Reply
