A Book by Lazarus Shatipamba

Experience is not what happens to you. Experience is what you do with what happens to you.

Aldous Huxley

Never judge a book by its black cover,
Lest you miss out on the perfect lover.
All because you did not read the book-
So you’ll know how its characters will look.

Never judge a book by its bleak cover.
Always make sure to turn the page over
So that you can see how the characters look
Like in order to choose the one you like.

Never judge a black book by its cover.
Just because on its front there is no flower,
Don’t mean its characters will not smell good.
In fact, they can always put you in a good mood.
