TOLU'S DIARY

TUESDAYS 10AM
Dear diary,

I’ve brought you another juicy package in form of poetry for this week’s episode. It is titled ‘Work’. It goes thus:
                                                    Haphazardly it goes,
                                                    With claws and not toes,
                                                    Deep into the earth as a hoe,
                                                    All for a work in the hole,
                                                    Mining minerals like coal,
                                            The crab worked and has oil in its bowl.

                                                    Go to the ants you sluggard,
                                                    Learn her ways you haggard,
                                                    Listen! Idleness is a hazard,
                                                    It will make you ragged,
                                                    Lazy man why are you so rugged?
                                               Get to work and don’t be a duck head

                                                    Hard work pays laziness slays,
                                                  Tick! Tick!! Tick!!! The clock says,
                                                    No time to sleep no time to lay,
                                                    Soft work will be a day pay,
                                                    Work with the sun and not its ray,
                                 Work your socks off and you will never derail.

                                                    Work while you work,
                                                     Later you can talk
                                                     Laziness you should tuck
                                                     Never wait for Mr. Luck
                                                     Papers on trees you will pluck
                                                     But do you care for alert in bulk?
                                                     Then you must get to work.
