Once there was a guy,
and a girl very shy;
The boy was bold,
the girl worth gold.
Their meeting was arranged,
marriage was the errand;
In the girl's native village,
they were of nearly same age.
The guy was a city lad,
well dressed and neatly clad;
The girl, a beautiful and simple sage,
was from a small village.
The boy had a very big weakness,
he loved eating food delicious;
He asked the girl whether she likes non-veg,
the girl after some shying, said yes.
He asked her to cook some,
she entered with fish awesome;
He and his family had it,
and after eating, finally nodded.
In their marriage vows,
was included one vow,
That the girl would forever keep cooking,
non-veg food and other dishes.
After two years, the wife became,
the disciple of a worthy sage;
She took to vegetarian forever,
and decided not to touch non-veg ever.
She became: a total vegetarian,
and her family: forced vegetarian;
The guy since that day, neither had fish,
nor any other non-veg dish.
This is their 24th year of successful marriage,
and they still don't have non-veg;
But this never affected their love,
as they were a pair of happy dove.
Even today, the wife dominates,
never lets non-veg enter the gates,
And I see they are never sad,
the are my mum and dad
