I Do Not Want To Hear About Northeast Indian English Verse Practitioners - Poem by Bijay Kant Dubey

Do not tell me falsely about the poetry practitioners
From the northeast of India,
The rhymers, non-poets, poetasters and commoners
Made poets,
Not the poets born.

May I ask you,
Where was there like northeastern Indian English poetry,
You accept it ther had not been,
Had there been any,
We would have from Dr.K.R.Iyengar and Dr.V.K.Gokak,
But be sure of,
There had not been,
Had there been, would have heard of definitely,
So make you not now
To call it northeastern Indian English poetry?

If there we poets, let them be from their local dialects,
I ant to hear about the natural
Assamese, Karbi, Mizo, Kokborok,
Bishnupriya Manipuri, Manipuri, Nagamese poets
Rather then the poets made
By the novice critics
Politicizing it all
As for to come into the limelight,
To the forefront of literature.

Oh, the little-little English-knowing poets doing politics,
The small-small critics doing politics,
None of them is established,
All just the no-men
Staking a claim over authorship,
Wanting to come to light!

    I read it down, it gives me mixed feelings about how i really think of you not your poem.U may penned down anything thats on ur mind, it'll never ever really work.Be a racist, be a self-claimed poet, i dont really care but pity.A great poet stop the war using his sharp words.So, i guess ur just not one among the Greats.
