As It Was - Poem by Kolawole Ajao

The wealth gathered by accretion
Quite better than that by quantum leap
The termitarium was not built in one day
The chick metamorphoses into a cock
but not within an eye's blink
Athens was once superior to Rome
And so did Rome to London
The egg of birds comes in variant
The weightier the bird, the heftier the egg
The first water I ate from my mother's bosom
is what science chooses to call colostrum
And it simply calls the remainder milk
Although I don't know how it tasted
I still value her for this sweet food.

    Quite better it is
    The way of things to develop and gather over an absorbing time highway
    The end goal reached is far better

    Very nicely done my friend.................... Jim Troy (Report) Reply

    Perspective of size comes forth well. - nice poem with thoughts interlaced. Such as GOD and a speck of dust called earth. (Report) Reply

    I like this one, Kolawole,
    Though a series of thoughts, you come to colostrum and what you write about that one is just wonderful. thanks (Report) Reply
