Treasure Island

Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

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

Values decline.


Corruption is a human behavior,
Which is reflective of the decline
In professional ethics and values.
Adultery is a human behavior,
Which is reflective of the decline
In marital trust and fidelity.
Shame is the weapon of the society.
It has become blunt; so has the decline.
As long as we salute the large scoundrels
For their wealth and guts we cannot stop it.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
