Seeing some crazy comments by a few elderly men (on another forum), to a snippet that eulogised a "Saree Pallu," I had retorted with this spontaneous poem. Since the flavour of the season happens to be a Saree, I have shared it with you. Hope you like it! A Humble Saree Pallu You spoke of a humble saree pallu; A pallu that covered the bosoms of maidens of yore, A pallu that cleaned the leaky noses without a care, A pallu that gave birth to many a lore, A pallu that shielded you from many a lusty stare, A pallu that hid the smells of your heart’s desire, A pallu that covered up many a folly you didn't dare, But did you notice.....? Just the mention of a pallu was enough to draw carnal desires Of men, whom you revered as harmless family heads. Trying in vain, to boast of their lusty conquests, Boldly baring the dirty fangs of unholy desires, And carelessly discarding the facade of wisdom cultivated over the years! Hmm...! All because you spoke of a humble pallu? ***END*** Emojis were taken from the internet for representation purposes only.
