Lovely enemies – Fola Daniel Adelesi.

Two fellows do good
To human beings.
One knowing he does good,
One thinking he does evil.
Our experience of joy
Makes life worth living
To this we owe,
Essentially, great thanks
To the good-doer.

Trials and failures
Packaged for us
Presented by adversaries
Contribute to our victory
To which, essentially,
We owe immeasurable thanks
To the evil doer.

Sailors of reputation
Ate the calm and storm
Excellent pilots
Ate lightening and storm
Man must need,
To live on after death,
Be pampered and punched by
Enemies and loved ones.

Fola Daniel Adelesi.
