A FESTIVAL OF NINE [NIGERIAN] LESSONS AND CAROLS THIS CHRISTMAS
LESSON 3 – Fall In Love, It’s A Slice Of Heaven!
My creed on love is best painted by the morbid ecstatic brushes of Charles Bukowski’s advice:
‘’Find what you love and let it kill you. Let it drain you of your all. Let it cling to your back and weigh you down to eventual nothingness. Let it kill you and let it devour your remains. For all things will kill you, both slowly and fastly, but it’s much better to be killed by a lover.’’
I have plenty more words to whip the topic but as I fear that whatever I add may do injustice to the purity of those expressed upstairs, I shall leave it here.
