The Other Side

I am obsessed with a merchant community  
reputed for their munificence
 have another face. 

Transactions govern them. 
 Revenue  stands out.
Investing for returns.

Unheard of in Weddings,
where the demand rockets 
the grooms wielding power.

What started in thousands 
goes beyond millions, 
cash and kind soar.

The grooms family 
takes pride of 
begetting a son.

The counterpart 
 remains demur 
 and accept.

 Generosity is  found in public 
Niggardliness looms large in private.
Irony breathes with a sigh.
