The Beloved Turned Sisters - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Three women about whom he was crazy
About fifty years ago in his youth
Are now free, as widows, for him to renew.
Desire for them dead, they look like sisters.

    very sad fact indeed! Though we preach monogamous relationship, why do many of our men turn to be ignorant conveniently.? and they want their wives to be monogamous. I stopped watching Tamil Drama Serials after Chithi, for these programs promote promiscuity, cheating, polygamous women and men and many more negative thoughts. What can you do, except exposing It in the poetical form! (Report) Reply
