TOLU'S DIARY

TUESDAYS 10 AM



Hi diary,
I came across a quote from English novelist; Marie Corelli which goes thus ‘’…what the fool cannot learn, he laughs at, thinking that by his laughter he shows superiority instead of latent idiocy’’. I therefore come up with a poem titled ‘I will learn to learn’ to charge you this day. It goes thus:
                                  I will learn to learn
Reading all the pages to ages,
                                  With rages as sages,
                                  From Dark Age to this age,
                                  I’ll never be a fool.

                                  I will learn to learn,
                                  Listening to words from the lord,
                                  As the board I’ll hoard
                                  The word to change my world
                                   Because I’ll never be a fool.

                                   I will learn to learn,
                                   Meditating all parts to be smart
                                   As I line up my charts pinned by a dart,
                                   The facts will make men doff their hat
                                   And I’ll never be a fool.

                                    I will learn to learn,
                                    Showing others the order,
                                    And my brother that won’t bother
                                    To stutter in the cold weather
                                    So as not to be a fool.

                                    Will you learn to learn?
                                    Seriously and not idiocy
                                    It’s not superiority but conformity
                                    To live so as to live
                                    And never be a fool.
