Darlington Chukwunyere

(Owerri, Nigeria.)

Back To School.


Back to school, my mind in good mood. My head enroute for good friuts. Back to school, yes I'm back for good. Don't be a fool dear, it's not just a virtual school of paper-books, it's a school of the mind, a school of thinking. Oh yes! My own school of thought. Every day is schooling, where you are is your lecture room, Life its' self is the teacher. School closes when we close our eyes, either in sleep or in SLEEP. Which ever way it closes, it yet continues on the other side. For there, we shall learn all that we failed while still LIFE's pupils.

    You must have gone instructed intil Poesy; whereat my first few steps xploring this neary matched off balance.
    That is deft, a poetic hood. You employed and imported figures to paint in details, this. Your hand is making to your hood, true.
    Run long Poet,
    Long live Oh Darlington;
    Your epoch is gone. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
