Gold vs. Silver

Gold vs. Silver

Gold is the only metal
Which one must possess
Silver is an add on

In many eastern countries
You can't marry
Unless you dress Ur bride in gold
Who pays is a different matter.

Then lock up the gold
And see what its value is
When you have to marry
Your daughter


For like every cloud
Marriage too has a silver lining
Only if you have wed
With tons of gold

The westerners
I see also wear a golden chain,
Mostly boys
Ask them why
Coz they can barter it easily
When occasion arises
