Silverfish:A Poem By Dr.Syed Md. Zainul Abedin

This is a strange looking fish
It lives in places without water
You will never like it on your dish
I bet it is stranger than Harry Potter

You will get it in your lovely book
It may emerge from bags and clothing
You will find it in dark and humid nook
It may ruin your precious thing

This strange creature secretly ate
Sixty kilos of delicious peanut
It never appeared to express regret
For plundering poor farmer’s hut

This creature has silvery body with six legs
It moves in a wiggling motion like a fish
Though an insect it is always wingless
It has the magical power to vanish

If you want to get rid of the filthy bug
Find the places where it lives in your home
Consult an expert who knows how to debug
But never panic as it has no venom

Tooth Story : Dr Syed Md Zainul Abedin

Last night met a wonderful girl child
She wore a pink kameez and always smiled
She recited rhymes and sang sweet song
It appeared that she knew me for long

The child happily told many amazing stories
The most stunning was about tooth fairies
She said how she pulled tooth herself
She moved the loose tooth without help
As she pulled her tooth like a dentist
Blood dropped on her clothing and wrist
She then put the tooth under her pillow
And waited for the tooth fairy to see her follow

I became very amazed by the child’s wit
I hope she will shine in life bit by bit

Now,let me turn to my own tooth story
I lost too many teeth and feel very sorry
Failed to sense the process of tooth decay
Consulted a dentist at a great delay
He compared my teeth with reeds of harmonium
And vowed to present the case in a symposium
His humor gives me pain and pleasure
I regret for not taking timely care

I pray the teeth of the flower like girl
Will always shine like pearl

Walk : Dr.Syed Md. Zainul Abedin

I will go for a walk today
My daughter will come with me
She has taken my charge from last May
Since doctor advised not to let me free

Last time we walked after dusk
Along the meandering path of an old lake
As I was attentive to my task
Suddenly I stumbled on something like snake

My daughter was not ready to see me fall
She cried and ran to pull me up
She tried hard but failed as she was quite small
Compared to my obese body and heavy stuff

People are not always helpless
A healthy youth came for my rescue
He gently pulled me and set me on a cosy place
He was quite expert like a fire crew

I thanked the youth from the core of my heart
He politely thanked back and left us there
I stared at the youth like a piece of art
And felt that there are many nice hearts to take care

Then we rested in the park and enjoyed the nature
Light reflected on the still water of the lake
Pleasant breeze played with us and unknown creature
I also felt sighs of some fairies around my neck

My daughter insisted to start for home
But my heart stuck to the mysterious spot
I felt very happy under the natural dome
I wished to write poem with streaming thought

However,we left the park and returned to our den
I enjoyed sound sleep with happy dream
Today we will go out to walk again
To a lovely farm with winding stream
