The mistress to note

a poem by rm shanmugam chettiar, India

Woman that has means to live with
Must not compromise with her lover
On being his mistress, not wife.
It’s better to be someone’s wife.
Thus the pride, not her principle,
And her money, not her virtue
Would earn her a dignified seat
And a motherhood with honour.
