Tomfoolery - Poem by Kolawole Ajao

I met a nitwit
In his titbits
Talk tommyrot
In a manner hurt
Sing of Mobutu
And despise Tutu
His memory a wane
He was insane.

(Dedicated to Desmond Tutu, Nobel Peace laureate.)

    My good buddy you are a great teacher in that I had to refresh my history a little
    and of course Mr TuTu is a saint in his helping the down troden... And your short
    poem is a gem and testomony of appreciation for a great man.....You have a
    way of saying so much with so little words..... You must be 'A Poet' I think..
