Knight Of Gold - Poem by Abiodun Adekoya

I came back home laid tired on my couch
Walking by the doldrums road seemed long like way to heaven
I saw one imp that spiteful like inferno
Suddenly turned into two dragons frightening like gold
I waved my staff and found myself at the end of a peaceful road
I came face-to-face with four doors full of dove feathers
Huge and smiling like holiness
I entered the first door
The first door gave me wisdom
I entered the second door
The second door gave me knowledge
I entered the third door
The third door gave me understanding
And I became stronger and witted like spirit
I entered the fourth door
A mystic and colossal study opened its door like unending sea
I saw seven men robed in white garments like cherub besides a mighty pot
I unveiled the golden pot and it became the universe
Four hoary men goggled down my courage with unhealed arrows
The pot got broken and re-circled into twenty four pots
Aries emerged and set me on a bitter battle
I fought like death and ended up as a victor
When my eyes aroused on the couch
I found neither gold nor any of those companions on my journey
But inside my pot I found the golden fish I ate before sleeping
