TOLU'S DIARY


EVERY TUESDAY 10AM

Hi 🙋 diary,
My pen has been sweating
To have a date again with writing
My love, today is all about story
Listen and keep your heads up like a storey.
Once upon a time in ages past,
Man was the number one cast
Movie 🎬 of life...its soap opera
Blockbuster? Yes, so expensive as a certain Oprah.
He creates them all
Then ordered we recreate not small
Daily he got the charge,
From his left ear it all discharge
His brain may store facts
What he loses is more than fat
He became naked as a result of this,
Now he knew he was an empty disc
You know his problem? He couldn't write it down
He failed severally till he was laid down
Another man kicked it off in Mesopotamia
Now its soothing; ask Chimamanda
Writing began on stones, wooden tablets and scrolls
Now its laptops, ipads we all scroll.
Rhyming in verses I've always dared,
Poetic license as Niyi Osundare
"Write the vision down" he'll add your share
Shares like 'Man Booker' of Adichie
Niwco so creative as Wole Soyinka
We made it, so you can
Huh! Eyes getting dim slowly
Blackout! End of my story
See you again diary
Call on me again dearie.
