Indira Renganathan


Affliction


Stroke of a heartless son
Desirably remained an unschooled rascal
Plunging ischemic into a father's mind
Sweep-swindling all the travail of asset
The father's cumulated..

Educated brat, conspiring wife
Plotted to be berserk
Paralysing the father
To be bundled empty of life
The father's cumulated..

Modern daughter of arrogance
Literate to be modest in secret eloping
Stupefying yearnest alliance -negotiations
To attack the heart's wishes
The father's cumulated..

Disagreeing a wedlock of orthodoxality
Bunking in spinsterhood of overweighed hubris
Modern daughter of arrogance
Commanding the pressure of patience
The father's cumulated..

Bound to the familial chores
Honest fathers await laudable lores
Distressed fathers gifted with sores..
Still mean the men of bad scores?
