Simon Odhiambo


A Poem a Day


One Poem at a time, Is what you can read
Try two and despair, that is where it will lead

One channel at a time, Is what you can watch
Try two and repair, that is not what it is worth

One step at a time, Is what we are to believe
Try two in the air, next time you will behave

One search at a time, may be two will do
Try two when you are there, It may come with a boo

One second at a time, is the measure of real age
Try two everywhere, and you will pay the wage

One word at a time, for a poem to be complete
Try two when am here, one day we will compete

One bye at a time, when am calling it a day
I will try two if am near, bye bye is what I say
