Decline

                Baby declines milk.
                                                        Mother's worry  no end, waits
                                                              for  sane advice.




                                                      Bride all decked
                                                   Declines  demand for dowry.
                                                         Groom's ego hurt.



                                                           








      Written in response to Haiku Horizon  prompt 'Decline'.

  5. Liked the second one. Dowry? Reminds me of the saying
    There is no such thing as an unattractive wealthy woman!

  6. Good ones, Ma'am. While the first one has been experienced by almost all mothers. The second one should become a norm of our society, it's high time now!

  7. I've never understood the dowry system...and probably never will!
