Gold Star - 18,843 Points (21 September 1972 / Jessore / Bangladesh)


Poem by Sayeed Abubakar

Women, like vegetables,
are found here and there.

Women, like fish, walk swinging their waists
on the Tulsi ground;
fishermen taking fishing nets in their hands
get puzzled and see nothing but darkness.

Women, like Biryani food, are found
into the rooms of all five star hotels.

Thanks to God! In our muddy cottages,
there live the women having beauty and color;
but more than that, they have much fragrance.

Topic(s) of this poem: satire, women

Form: Blank Verse

    You are praising the simple women who live in mud cottages. Wealthy women can also be good. Sometimes wealth spoils the habits of both women and men.(Report)Reply
