I Do Not Want To Hear About Northeast Indian English Verse Practitioners

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!

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
