The Modern Era Of Free And Extra - Poem by Sk. Nurul Huda

I was present in the shop.
A father bought a baby food
Horlicks big and got a small
Pouch absolutely fee.

I was there in the land of
Stones and sand and also
Of poetry and cold, scenic beauty.
I find many ruined, desolated
Buildings and caves and some men
And children dead, totally free
And lineless wounded as
20% extra.

I fear and I feel happy,
But which I pay and which I
Get as free or extra I can
Not understand Here.

In sleep, I go to the moon and
Look yonder to the world,
A happy, green and blue
Heavily loaded with witty and
Costly human beings, is
Moving stumbling
Wearing a dusty sheet of
Violence, entirely Free.

Topic(s) of this poem: death, terrorism, violence, war

    i never heard of this brand/product:

    Horlicks India - Big Basket
    Horlicks is the top milk powder brand in India. Buy Horlicks foodles, junior horlicks and horlicks lite online here and get attractive discount on a...............

    Horlicks...........sounds like something one might get arrested for dong around here. [that is supposed to be a joke]

    these lines and phrases (especially) I don’t understand:

    “And lineless wounded as
    20% extra.” ……………could you mean “lifeless”? if so, I still don’t understand.

    “But which I pay and which I
    Get as free or extra ….”

    “Costly human beings, ” ………..costly? wealthy?
    ===========================

    my favorite stanza:

    “In sleep, I go to the moon and
    Look yonder to the world,
    A happy, green and blue
    Heavily loaded with witty and
    Costly human beings, is
    Moving stumbling
    Wearing a dusty sheet of
    Violence, entirely Free. “ ………………is it “the world” which is moving stumbling wearing? that would make sense.


    a Poet’s Note would help I think.

    thanks for sharing. bri :)
