Nazeer Akbar Abadi

jab aadami ke peT meN aati haiN roTiyaaN

RoTi se jis kaa naak talak peT hai bharaa

sau sau tarah ki dhoom machaati haiN roTiyaaN

jis jaa pe haaNDi choolhaa tawaa aur tanoor hai

in roTiyoN ke noor se sab dil haiN poor poor

roTi jab aa_i peT meN sau qand ghul gaye

ye kashf ye kamaal dikhaati haiN roTiyaaN

roTi na peT meN ho to phir kuchh jatan na ho
mele ki sair Khwaahish-e-baaG-o-chaman na ho
