Babatunde Aremu


Spoken Word


Just like a broken egg
Word spoken cannot be gathered
It disappears but continually echos
In the heart of the hearers
Spoken word is life frames
We are what we uttered
So, whatever comes your way
Speak like God to it
It will soon fizzle out
And you will be
Like the spoken word, once again.

by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
