238. Literature 

A book can help you to kill time. 

A good book can teach you a lesson. 

A great book can change your view of the world. 

An incredible book can change your life. 

An astonishing book can change the world. 

The power held with the pages (e-pages) of books is incredibly diverse, potent in its simplicity and filled with a potential to change everything. This is why it is paramount that we increase literacy rates not only within our communities but also on a global scale. I wrote this haiku about illiteracy. 

Do not let them read,

Said the powerful gentry, 

If they read, they’ll know. 

(Eli Woodbine – Canada , Toronto, 2016)
