Marriages

Few of them are made in heaven
The rest roll out of hell
"Nothing unusual in that"
Socrates would have dismissed
a young Plato's question.
Leave the philosophers out
A layman still stands confounded.
It takes a life time to make it work
Something wrong easily draws frowns
Rumours bite people's ears.
There are enough forbidden fruits, snakes
and ladders, for two to be occupied.

Loved the tone of the poem.. and the sarcasm - The rest roll out of hell - was top notch!

A fine piece of poetry, my friend!

Thank you. Also, glad to see you link up my blog in yours.

Yes, so true. Only few are 'made n heaven'.Even that heaven would love to look down to earth at times for short break :)

Read few other poems as well. Good to have stumbled here.

"Sarcasam is it? Or truth in its naked form?" I wonder!
