Red Colour Poem by Mohammad Younus

Red Colour



My daughter is soo crazy about red,
A red shirt, a red blouse, a red shawl,
A red rice cooker! A red frij! a red washing machine!
Red carpets! Red curtains!
"Girls should not go for red...
...it is the colour dear to a bear",
Her mother would often tell her,
In some cultures, it is the colour of shame, and obscenity;
In some cultures, it is a colour of passion;
In some cultures, it is the colour of proletariat revolt;
In some cultures, it is the colour of sacrifice;
In some cultures, it is the colour of bloodshed;
In ours, it is the colour of betrayal, and treason...
...in the name of so called nationalism;
A girl is the mother of a nation;
She should be a Mehjuba, a cool chinar-shadow,
A strong dedicated teacher, to bring up her children well.
