Alphabeti

Today’s topic is ‘Alphabet Poem’ (A 26 line poem. With each line starting with a letter of the alphabet). I know I’m not such a good poet but I know I have to still carry on with this project. So I decided to reduce the number of people that can read my poem. Yoruba people… (H)Enjoy! Abike Omo Labinjo; Iyawo afesana Jimoh Barawo aye ati orun. Common insolent prostitute. Daadaa
