Intentions And Results - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Between provocation
And retaliation
There’s no correlation.
It’s like a seed and tree.

A spark of fire can spread
To destroy a forest.
A rebuke thrown at one
Can lead to a suicide.

Reaction can go high.
Retaliation is still more.
Repercussion might be
More than perceivable.

The affected are upset
With the attacks received,
For their intended ends
Are not the resultant ends.
