The Conversation - Poem by Abdulrasheed Dawodu

Meseems the street looks deserted today
Quotha! And what do I see
A young boy? Younger than the rest?
Oh! They were just like him.

Good day your holiness
Shallom my boy
How art thou?
I am fine sir
What ye seeketh?
The road to guidance
Oh! Just like the rest

Here where I sit
I have guided the ways of many
I have shown them the path
Go thither
Follow the path, take the bend
The road you seeketh

The bend?
Yes, my boy
But the signpost says straight
Yes, your holiness
I have been here all the time
Still, I have been on this siege like a statue

The signpost doesn't look new
Yes, it was mounted the days of yore
But it shows straight
Wellaway! I never read it.

Let me show you the way your holiness
My back is bent
Soothly, I can barely stand
I'll give you the support you require
Let's go yonder, the road to guidance
We all seeketh.
