কাতুকুতু বুড়ো  –  সুকুমার রায়

আর যেখানে যাও না রে ভাই সপ্তসাগর পার,
কাতুকুতু বুড়োর কাছে যেও না খবরদার !
সর্বনেশে বৃদ্ধ সে ভাই যেও না তার বাড়ী—
কাতুকুতুর কুল্‌পি খেয়ে ছিঁড়বে পেটের নাড়ী ৷
কোথায় বাড়ী কেউ জানে না, কোন্ সড়কের মোড়ে,
একলা পেলে জোর ক’রে ভাই গল্প শোনায় প’ড়ে ৷
বিদ্‌ঘুটে তার গল্পগুলো না জানি কোন্ দেশী,
শুনলে পরে হাসির চেয়ে কান্না আসে বেশী ৷
না আছে তার মুণ্ডু মাথা, না আছে তার মানে,
তবুও তোমায় হাসতে হবে তাকিয়ে বুড়োর পানে ৷
কেবল যদি গল্প বলে তাও থাকা যায় সয়ে,
গায়ের উপর সুড়সুড়ি দেয় লম্বা পালক লয়ে ৷
কেবল বলে, “হোঃ হোঃ হোঃ, কেষ্টদাসের পিসি—
বেচ্‌ত খালি কুমড়ো কচু হাঁসের ডিম আর তিসি ৷
ডিমগুলো সব লম্বা মতন, কুমড়োগুলো বাঁকা,
কচুর গায়ে রঙ–বেরঙের আল্‌পনা সব আঁকা ৷
অষ্ট প্রহর গাইত পিসি আওয়াজ ক’রে মিহি,
ম্যাও ম্যাও ম্যাও বাকুম বাকুম ভৌ ভৌ ভৌ চ‌ীঁহি ৷”
এই না বলে কুটুৎ ক’রে চিমটি কাটে ঘাড়ে,
খ্যাংরা মতন আঙুল দিয়ে খোঁচায় পাঁজর হাড়ে ৷
তোমায় দিয়ে সুড়সুড়ি সে আপনি লুটোপুটি,
যতক্ষণ না হাসবে তোমার কিচ্ছুতে নাই ছুটি ৷
