A learned person shall not eat the food from….!


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!

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
