Sonnet: The Widow’s/Widower’s Life - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

I wonder how a widow young does spend
Her life without any sex indulgence;
Against a cruel world how does she fend,
With children live? Her life can be so tense.

Nor can she marry yet another man!
Society does not accept this with ease;
She keep away from adultery, How can?
Can masturbation give her mental peace?

The widower’s lot is a lot better!
He weds a wife again without much fuss;
With children tho’, he is in no fetter;
The problem’s great if it does affect us!

And so, such men, women just tend to live,
In sins of flesh for peace it can now give!
