Sabuz The Black Boy - Poem by Z.I. Mahmud

It is Sabuz the Black Boy
He looks like a black African
He abides in Bangladesh
He is eight years old
His family is very poor
His mother works for my grandma for 500 Taka
He knows swimming well
He knows how to climb on trees
He goes to school
He has only one pen and a copy, few books
He cannot buy anything
Not even that thing which costs 1 Taka
He is not sad at all
But it seems that he is the most happiest boy in the world
He doesn't quarrel with anyone
He is very soft and pure
He doesn't have any pride or vanity
He is expert in sports
He likes to listen to his mother
He likes to sleep with her
Yes it is Sabuz The Black Boy
He doesn't have anything
Though he doesn't understand and feel for it
He is very simple
He doesn't know the world
How he can face this world in future?
