Mad Poet,

Stay here now

I see you wandering in your rags

On the banned streets

Your poems are not yours

Now

They belong to the visitors

Promising you of

Your liberation

Now

You stand in the curfew

Violently shouting

Words not your own

You sing of their madness

They say that

Cures the residents.

Mad poet,

Stay here now

We need the dark

We need to hear

Their mad songs

Show us

How invasion looks

~
