Small Saves The Day…..by Dr. Ezechinyere Ekpo (aka Dr. Swag)

Life is beautiful, don’t we all agree?  And no, it’s not because of the big stuff. Oftentimes, it is the small things in life that make the big difference – a warm smile, a pat on the shoulders, a kind word or deed…

Sometimes, it is the act of a small child that saves the day, in a way that older ones will not be able to grasp.

The poem below, written by Dr. Ezechinyere Ekpo, also known as Dr. Swag, stresses this fact in a masterful way. If you know Dr. Swag, you’ll be able to see his characteristic signature in this spectacular telling. Messieurs, mesdames, presenting Dr. Swag!

Small Saves The Day

A mammoth riddle loomed before clueless citizens
Of such mighty proportions none could solve
Experts and specialists could not resolve
This Goliath of a conundrum the best could not best
The colossal challenge was such a bother
That it made everyone shudder
The dread of it gave a fever
Made even the president shiver

There was no hope
Men could only mope
Before this giant who could cope?
All answers ended with a nope
Then came up a runt, a tiny tot
“What can he do?” they thought
Of his sling and stone they mocked
But heroic acts dare not be docked!

Into his business did they poke
Taunted they, this dude is a joke!
He did not stand a chance
And must be wakened from his trance
Nothing more was he than a kid
How could he of a gargantuan dilemma rid?
But it was smallness that saved the day
A lad, a sling and a stone

  1. Dr Swag!!!!

    I want to holler at my good Doctor, and the amiable Zika ma’am, and ‘m confused on where to start!

    Okay, here goes…

    Thank you Zika ma’am for doing this guest post thingy, and bringing everyone out on this! You did well ma’am. God bless you. I have never read anything poetry from his Royal Higness’ wealth of bits, but this right here is a WOWZER! (Copyright, Madam Yemie! :D)

    Dr Swag, your swagger knows no bounds! Be it in prose, or poetry… or serenading a lady. No more words Doctor. All ‘ve got for you is love and respect! Muy bien! Perfecto!

  3. Wow! The story of David and Goliath told brilliantly well in few lines! That’s pretty clever Swag! Clueless citizens huh? No surprises there seeing as the Lord uses the seemingly foolish things of this world….a lad, a sling and a stone; to confound the seemingly wise…the giant Goliath, that’s all but gentle; his great mastery of the most sophisticated weaponry of war, in those days and of course his ‘resume’ of being a Victor and never a Vanquished! So yeah, small saved the day…little wonder! Oluwa’s involved! 😇😃

    Great going Swag, you brought this……GOOD! 👉😆
