Palmy-amorous

A politically incorrect love poem

Palmy-amorous

Being poly-amorous

I loved four different women

At one go.

The first one left a seven inch scar on my belly.

The second one, a slightly impaired left knee.

The third, a scalded tongue.

And, the fourth, a crooked nose.

These days, I am strictly monogamous

Sticking to my one and only

Palm tree.

Mira: Awesome,... relationship with 4 different women leads to a monogamous relationship to Palm tree!

Team Bonobology: Polyamory is differentiable from some other forms of nonmonogamy (including adultery) in that it is future-oriented. Poly relationships are not located solely in the moment, but have intentions (though perhaps tacit and vaguely defined) of at least adding to a base of experience possibly so far as signifying a life-long and emotionally attached commitment :)

I am Krishna: Brought a smile on my face. Someone shared a story. A poet said, men are soft, women hard. If a man leans on a woman's shoulder on a train, she will create a 'hungama' and have the guy ostracised. If a woman leans on a man's shoulder (stranger) if he has to go till Surat, he will go till Mumbai!

Team Bonobology: An interesting point shared by Anthony D. Ravenscroft in Polyamory: Roadmaps for the Clueless and Hopeful: An Introduction on Polyamory - “It's a false premise to say that most monogamous people have chosen monogamy. Most people belong to the religion they were raised in...because that's what's familiar. That's the milieu they grew up in, and, for better or worse, they're just continuing the pattern. Until this traditionalist mindset is shaken loose, you would likely try from reflex to impose notions onto nonmonogamy that are not only untenable in the new context but spel sudden and messy doom even in situations that otherwise could be worked out.”

Rajat Poddar: Exquisite! Wisdom comes with experience and time...

Team Bonobology: Some common mistakes made in polyamorous relationships can tear a relationship apart, however, these mistakes if caught early enough can help the relationship by bringing partners closer together. :)
