Papa My Original Teacher - Poem by Babatunde Aremu

Papa is my original teacher
The strong tread
That ties me to the earth
Papa is my source
That conveys me
Vide the bumpy roads
Papa is my light
That illuminates my paths
Papa is my coach and guardian
Who to taught me to read world map
To avoid missing my tracts
Papa use of rods
Showed me how to cross the seas
He forsakes his merriment
To teach me about life
He schooled me to greatness
To exalt my horns
Papa is an encourager
Papa is my original teacher
Who tutored me to greatness
