“Books Should Be Sold” — A Poem by Kingsleythepoet

Books should be sold
But to who?
To people who prefer to download
Including him, her and you?

To a generation
That undervalues education
Prefers to look
Than to touch a book?

Books are now analyzed by their covers
Scents and colors
This book smells like horror
Ah! I don’t like this author.

Give me the soft copy
Hold the hard
“You’ve finished the book”
No, I copied and pasted.

List of books in my diary
All I’ve read are their summaries
List of books in my head
None have I read.

Knees will continue to kneel
And inks will forever spill
Till ignorance becomes outdated
And book shelves updated.

Why not share?
