Stupidity Of Flirts - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.
One loves and the other lets one do so.
Some infatuated swains in their course
Mistake insensibility of women
For modesty, their dullness for reserve
And their vacuity for bashfulness.
Thus a man loves in a fool’s paradise.
One likes and the other let one do so.
Some female swans in their imagination
Treat men’s dullness as simplicity,
Their selfishness as superiority
And stupidity as manly gravity.
Thus a woman lives in a fantasy.
(Inspired by Vanity Fair novel)
