Do Not Return Kindness, Pass it On

Without any self-interest I battled for you:
To save your dignity, your honour;
and I succeeded.
Nobody supported me in your cause.
Everybody spoke ill of you.
That you are thankless,
that you close up to people
make them misunderstand,
and kick them.
I
had nothing in mind
except that somebody sought refuge.
How can I not work for you,
a lady, whose honour was at stake.
Having solved your problem,
you cannot forget me.
But I do not want to remember you specially.
For greed takes over very easily.
Only well thought out application of the mind
can keep one away from sin.

Your body is alluring.
But I do not want to commit
any cardinal sin.
So I just enquire:
How is your other half,
and your children?

I draw an invisible line in the mind.
And I would rather you forget
your benefactor.

You rather not return the kindness.
You better pass it on.
