Treasure Island

Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

(June 15,1942 / Aravayal, karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, South India)

Means and Ends


She sold her beauty
And bought popularity,
And, with popularity,
She got prosperity,
With which she attained
Supremacy to stay afloat.

He sold his greediness
And bought elevation,
And, with elevation,
He got governance,
With which he minted
Money to keep others down.
