In the library

                                              In the voice of Chinua Achebe
I look for a book up there
I look for a book out there
I saw a bunch of them
Hard to choose, I got all of them
I want to go and sit down now
And listen to a song by Alice Keys
Although music is playing in my ear,
My eye on a “book of nonsense” by Lear
A book was in his hands, by Lara
His friends call him Tara
As I stare at him walking my way
Back in my head, I was like yay!
His friends were calling him, but larking
I started laughing
I left there, for home
Since then, haven’t seen them
