DOWRY –WARS

a poem by Drsudarsan Damodar Prasad, India

Marriages are made in heaven,
Dowries are paid on earth!
Brides are God send,
Till they are sent back home,
By their respective mothers- in –law,
For bringing lighter bundles,
Of dowries!

Kerosene stoves,
Tongues as sabre,
Rolling pins,
Foul mouths,
Numerous are the weapons-
Used in dowry –wars!
Till the war ends-
In a burns ward,
Or even better, in a funeral pyre!

Till then, marriages are made in heaven,
Dowries are paid on earth!
Brides are also burnt,
Strictly, only on earth!
