Sample Answer:
It is a satirical poem and it deals with the present state of art works in the world. I heard it from the poet at a meeting held at my university. In fact, the poem was a protest against the current situation of the literary works. This candidate task is interesting and I am happy to have this in my share.

I came to know about the poem at the university conference hall. I was the anchor in the event and had to host the entire event from beginning to the end. When the poet came to deliver the lecture, he recited the poem and I came to know about it. I saw him that he was writing something before delivering the lecture but could not guess what he was writing. Later, when he told about the poem, I was astonished that how a man can compose such a nice poem in a short time. Moreover, each of the lines was impressive. I have never heard or read such an interesting poem before.

And I like the poem based on some grounds. First of all, it was an interesting creation and the theme was about the disastrous condition of the world. The poem also indicated about the deteriorating status of the society and even the literature is being influenced by the corruption. Now literature is being used as a tool to serve any specific political purposes instead of entertaining the people. So, people are expressing their reluctance to literary works.  

I was really amazed by the poem. Actually, the poem was made to criticize the modern-day activities of the art work activists. The poet wanted to make it clear that art works should solely aim to satisfy the common people not to serve the political or other goals.
