A Learned Person Shall Not Eat The Food From….! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

A learned person
Who had learnt many moral books;
Who knows what is just and morality
Shall not eat the food served by
The below mentioned three persons!

From
A person with low caliber and mean minded
Who never respects the elders and educated,
Who lives with extreme pride
And arrogance!

A whore wearing beautifully
Designed bangles jewelry,
Who bargains her beauty –
With narrow waist and broad hip
Resembling the hood of a cobra -
Sells her private parts for money!

A person who destroyed the almshouse
Meant for poor people and saints!

செருக்கினால் வாழும் சிறியவனும் பைத்தகன்ற
அல்குல் விலைபகரும் ஆய்தொடியும் - நல்லவர்க்கு

கைத்துண்ணார் கற்றறிந் தார்.25 திரிகடுகம்
