What do you think this poem is about?

For Example: love, art, fashion, friendship and etc.

Noble people will be listening with compassion!

In an audience of futile persons
with improper knowledge
and poor intelligence,

If a person with inadequate education
is conversing to his interest and discussing,
Noble people of good manners - with painful feeling

and due regards to that person - will be listening
to him with compassion lest that person
should not be humiliated by other listeners!
