THE PSALM OF LITERATURE .
LITERATURE is my guardian,
I shall not act wrong,
It make me to lie down in DRAMA, PROSE and POETRY.
It leads me to FIGURATIVE EXPRESSION.
It restore my brain.
It leads me in the path of TRAGEDY and COMEDY.
For the sake of MELODRAMA.
Ye though, if I work through the valley of ALLITERATION,
I will fear no METONOMY.
Your IDIOMS and your PARABLES, they comfort me,
Thou prepared a SPEECH before me,
In the present of RHETORICAL QUESTIONS,
Thou anointed me with ROMANTICISM and METAPHYSICAL POETRY,
Because my POETIC problems are over.
Surely, PART OF SPEECH and FIGURE OF SPEECH shall follow me,
All the days of my life,
And I shall dwell in the advice of WOLE SOYINKA,
And WILLIAN SHAKESPEARE,
Forever and ever (Amen).
Poet: Adewale Adeyemi Inspiration.
