Bride Hunting by Zunera Bukhari

Poem

Bride Hunting

For her lad
Functionally illiterate
Mean-spirited, evil-minded
Indicted for corruption
Over recent weeks
Turfing out of employment
Upon him
A fine of two lakh was charged

After turning down various
His mom is looking high and low
A girl of twenty-five
Drop dead gorgeous
Well brought up
Sinless and saintly
A walking encyclopedia
Self-denying
Rolling in money
And tight-lipped
