جناب اطہر شاہ خاں صاحب کی مزاحیہ اردو شاعری
،داخلہ اُس نے کالج میں کیا لے لیا
،لڑکیوں میں بڑا معتبر ہو گیا
،کھڑکیوں سے نظر اُس کی ہٹتی نہیں
میرا بیٹا تو بالغ نظر ہو گیا
’صاحب زادے کرتے کیا ہیں؟‘ لڑکی والوں نے پوچھا
’جب دیکھو فارغ پھرتے ہیں یا پیتے تمباکو ہیں‘
لڑکے کی اماں یہ بولیں’کام کرے اس کی جوتی‘
دو بھائی بھتہ لیتے ہیں ابا خیر سے ڈاکو ہیں
،رنگ خوشبو گلاب دے مجھ کو
،اس دعا میں عجب اثر آیا
،میں نے پھولوں کی آرزو کی تھی
آنکھ میں موتیا اتر آیا
