The poet is not a free bird

he needs to find words

he can't chirp the way bird does

he needs to be responsible to choose

 

no doubt, he has domain

and remains in full control

his fancies cross the border

and speak louder

 

the poet knows where to land

where to end his theme

where to raise the banner of revolt

and how to face the blue from the bolt 

 

he is subject to torture 

and faces censure 

They put his articles under observation 

and sometimes faces deportation 

 

if they find him not observing the local rules

They keep him under surveillance

They take him to custody for defiance 

and they pronounce the sentence

 

this happens in extraordinary circumstances,

when he cannot rectify his past mistakes 

otherwise, he has the privilege of being praiseworthy 

and this has been taken as pride for the country ...
