THE GUEST

Once written to your guestNow am the guest,Telling the previous tales,While in your tail.The value addition,For my evaluation, Cross examinationOf all information.The duplicates of life,Fantasy made fantastic,Without a rife,Am realistic! Let’s roll together again,We both make gains,Collaborating gladly,Doing it professionally.1/5/201715:27- Abu Dhabi12:27- Lagos (c)Olutayo IRAN-TIOLA, Lagos, Nigeria
