Muddy Girl And A Barbie Doll - Poem by M. Asim Nehal
In a beautiful red dress
Curly hairs nicely combed
White shoes shining through
A tiny girl drops down from the golden car
With a Barbie doll in her hands.
While passing by a small vegetable vendor,
She encounters a small girl sitting besides vegetables,
She wore a patchy blue dress that accumulated dirt
Hairs like wild grass, no make-up and no shoes.
Muddy girl says to her Dad,
“Look at my equivalent,
She is wearing nice dress,
Her hairs nicely combed, shoes so cute”.
Yet what troubles me is that Barbie Doll.
Dad, “can you get one for me”?
And dad says, “honey it is of no use”,
We have no safe place to keep,
Dog may take it or water may spoil,
Play with your vegetables.
With a horn blow of passing by motor,
The Barbie doll falls from tiny hands,
And so the tears from those little eyes.
With a kiss and hug, muddy girl says to her Dad
“I have the best”.
