Scolding The Abusers In Turn Is Like Burning Their Own House! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

O’ girl with glistening broad eyes
...more beautiful than the flower!
If the persons who can’t tolerate the abusers,
...who had hurt your mind painfully;

And if these persons retorted by scolding
...the abusers in turn with their tongue,
it is like the capacity to burn
...their own house with fire!
