Walking in vain in the city suburbs
Not able to reach the stars -
To bring them down into mud, he wants.
Thinking a lot
The mind he had forgotten;
Bought yogurt and cheese-cream in the bazaar
And was upset! why the seller likes the milk?
Didn’t like grape
So it’s liquor did he drink without any thirst;
Thinking of yesterday and tomorrow
His presence had he lose.
He walked in the city suburbs
Thinking he is the centre;
In fact, only in the suburbs
Could he seem the centre.
Touched by the worldly amnesia
He thought of heart diseases all the time
Since it was heart itself he had forgotten.
