"The content is extremely tedious," Nasruddin told him afterwards, "and the style is even worse."
Enraged, the governor put Nasruddin in jail.
The governor had composed a new poem and decided to give Nasruddin a second chance. He summoned Nasruddin back to court, recited the new poem, and then asked his opinion.
Without a word, Nasruddin got up and started to leave the room.
"Just where do you think you are going?" shouted the governor.
"Back to jail," replied Nasruddin.
