Who is Iqbal “Poem”

Who is Iqbal asks a Negro?

How can I answer?

Who was Iqbal? I don’t know either

I told him he was an Indian poet that’s all

“Thy abode is not on the dome of a palace”

“You are falcon and should live on rocks of the mountains”

These two lines was all I could say in response and left

I came home disappointed unable to answer who was Iqbal
