Do You Wish to Sing? by Adeogo Adedeji


Young bard do you wish to sing?

sing logic into the logos of memories
salute that great cartographer; Rafka

lose reason to the music of soul
hearken to the “son of songs”

let the simple songs of Napoleon
frighten you into dreams.

Then seek out Nefelibata
The sacred bard of dreams

And when you awake
Your voice shall Bee of the future.
