Guardians of Culture

There are sticks and stones
for the unbroken bones.
For, this valentines again
they are coming.

They may marry you off without
giving a date for consummation.
Please go ahead in the bushes
right after they leave.

They are the guardians
of cultural virginity.
They like resewing
after every tear.

Their lives are like empty vases.
This activity once a year would
keep them occupied.
It is cathartic too
for their bad love lives.
They can perform only on the roads.

What would their future be?
Would their resumes say
how many couples they have married off?
May be more sophisticatedly
this is called community work.
