(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

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!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
