Poetry Play #27

Samuel Oluwatobi Olatunji and Baba Vin



                I got your message


                 In lazy letters scattered around


                The same way my keyboard is structured

                But my thoughts are recollected, my mind is restructured


                Pass this message across

                Be the poetry preacher!


                I would but it’s past bed time

                My congregation is asleep


                Sleep well then

                But don’t let the message slip off your fingers


                I might fall asleep but the message won’t slip


                Good, watchman!

                Walk gently through the night on the street of dreamland


                The watch says 11:45 pm

                But the message says forever


                A message for present and posterity

                Keep it safe, watchman


                Like a goal keeper I would


NB: Poetry Play, a product of Artilogue in partnership with PenAStory, is a game in form of poetic dialogue for every poet on BBM. It is a game of two poets: one drops a line or more, and the other replies, flowing along until one of them gives up, or the poem gets too long. Every poem formed from this game will be published here (penastory.com) every Friday and Saturday. So poets, are you ready to play? If yes, contact Samuel via BBM: 7f5210ec
