“I know A River”

I know a river;
long before I began to hold a pen
those days of-
-“twinkle, twinkle little star”

I know a river;
A river of words;
Not river-benue or river-niger
But its a river that flows in human-imagination
And a paper is made as a boat
-paddled with pen
To sail a message to the earth
From heaven’s gate
-a lullaby to the infant and wise-words to the adult

I know a river;
Shakespeare and others’ve been to the river
-they took their bathe and left
Today,
Here I stood by its bank,
With my colleagues Akewusola habib, Oludipe samuel,
muhammad-ahmad
-Rasak-malik-Gbolahan, Randy michael, Oloidi kingfemi and others
In the young of our days
Bathing in the river of words
Though we’re nude in the river
But we’re clothe with our imaginations

I know a river;
A river from solomon’s source
Now I am swimmer,
-in its floods
