Say Olori

…You know you want to

What Can I say? – by Shola Olawumi

Hi there! Remember my call for submissions? Well, the submissions have been rolling in. This right here is one submitted by Shola Olawumi. He’s a very fine individual; nice and pleasant; more of a lawyer than a writer but hey! who says you have to be a professional writer to get published on sayolori? ๐Ÿ™‚ I find his poem amusing and really sweet in a way. Feel free to leave your thoughts on this piece. Above all, enjoy reading it. I know I did.


What can I say
To make your day?
Should I say you’re pretty?
And not like ugly Betty.
Or should I say you’re funny
Just like Bugs Bunny?
Maybe I should say you’re kind,
Because thats also on my mind.
I can also say you’re nice,
I just hope you dont melt like ice.
And I really hope calling you a celebrity
Will not later make you a nonentity.
But whatever I say
I just hope it makes your day.
