THE BOOK IS MY NEIGHBOUR

This is a conversation between the CHILD and the BOOK which the writer sees as the god of Knowledge. The child in his quest for knowledge went to the house of the god of knowledge (Library). Hence, this conversation erupted

 

CHILD: Book! Book!!
Wisdom of the
gods
Open the door for
me
Are you not my
neighbour?
Why are you
treating me like
an imp?
Would you not
allow me come
in?

BOOK: Who is knocking
on my door?
I will allow you
come in
If you value me
like salt and
taste me like
sugar
If you know my
worth and value
me
Did you come
with my CAP and
TAIL?

CHILD: Which CAP and
TAIL?
Are you not my
neighbour?
Why are you
treating me like
an outcast?
As if we are not
friends again

BOOK: Because you are
not studious
I will only open
the door for you
If you learn to
study my
behaviour with the
CAP and TAIL
I gave to you

CHILD: Please unlock
the door for me
I will learn to use
the CAP to read
and store you up
And the TAIL to
write in class
