Dadabi 2

Dadabi 2

 

 

He mistook me for a dadabi
He said only the dadabis
Will sit down to write
Poetry like me

Are pens made for the
wealthy alone?
Or do we express ourselves
differently based on our genes?

He mistook me for a dadabi
He said only the dadabis
Will speak good English
To everyone they meet

Are voices given
based on assets and things?
Or is learning a taboo
For a middle class like me?
