Atioro - Poem by Babatunde Aremu

Atioro, ever busy bird
Stop flying a little
Rest a while
Your flight is good
But a little is good
Remember, a bird killed
Because of a small seed
Many of her species
Will perch on other seeds
A little rest re-invigorates
So, take it easy
Take a leisure
Atioro, dutiful bird

    Simply saying that man should be contented with what he has rather than go extra miles to attain what he cannot have. Hmmm... Oro agba (Report) Reply
