Snatching Is Deadly. - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

In the demise of your wife
Or in the elopement of your wife,
The result is same: you lose her.
Should she die, you lose her only.
Should she flee, you lose yourself:
your ego, your nerve and soul-
a matter of shame in out of form.
You can miss, can you get plundered?
The humiliation is graver than the loss.
A grudge for revenge stays.
