To Be A Poet - Poem by Ershad Mazumder

What to compose
and how to compose
I do not know.

Someone dragging me
to compose
When I completed my writing
People started stoning me
State comes to prison me
Justice says, he is anti-state
and anti-god.

I do not know
who is poet
and what is poetry.
Rumi asked me
drink your passion
be in disgrace
to be a poet.
