A Rustic Speaking English, An Indian As Master Saheb - Poem by Bijay Kant Dubey

A rustic knows he not English,
But shoes he
That he knows English,
A great master of English
By saying peculiarly,
What is your name,
What is your father's name
Just like a billy goat,
An Indian rustic,
A villagerly or small town man
Pronouncing strangely,
Showing himself
That he knows English,
What is your name,
what is your father's name,
Where do you live?

Chewing paan, taking tobacco
Speaks he English,
Speaks he in English,
An Indian,
An Indian rustic he,
A villagerly township man,
As dull as a billy goat,
A dolt, blockhead
Speaking in English
Strangely
Showing like an Englishman,
But is not,
An Indian
He slow and clumsy,
Half literate.
