The quest for knowledge wizardry Like a madman gathering dirts Poet bookends anything readable for wisdom. A Factotum in the ocean flowing with books Paddling a canoe of knowledge with a pen as a raconteur. A poet, with a brain as a bookbinder Scribble scrabbling precepts, messages to exorcise humanity. Poets are book crafts, bookers of philosophy painting people's hearts with words Colorfully shaping their ideologies To profit their lives with knowledge. Like the river, flows to flood everything at its banks A poet, turned a biblioklept of purpose, amassing anything readable To build his tower of knowledge bookishly An Antiquary, excavating to exhume wisdom Buried in the cranium of earth by ancient philosophers As history begets today to prepare tomorrow. I am a bookworm, bookmarking ideologies Sealed within folded covers of knowledge treasure. Burn of the oceanic kegs of scriveners' punditry Making my pen to yodel ululation Eulogizing the beauty of their artistry alacrity. Like Ralph Ellison made a writer By Richard Wright and his artistry works I'm born a Bibliophile by Shakespeareans and Soyinkas. Every poet is a bibliophile, treasuring books Genuinely interested in reading, to uncover knowledge Imbedded instructionally books, a philosophical guide To all that treasure it as building blocks of humanity. Knowledge is light and power sealed in books We must embrace books as bookworms To enlighten and protect the human society. At the book dining, poets all eat books as pantophagists of wisdom Kept in shelves in the order of relativity The best students spend their resourceful time in the book bank Making the library their Haven and asylum to rest their boredom and fatigue For knowledge gaining as bibliophiles at the canteen of books - -the library. © Ikwulono Mohammed Senison
