    Cleo Bonny, World Reading culture ambassador
    North West university ambassador
    University library user culture,
    The world knowledge is not a fake culture,
    Read read and harder like learning culture
    Suppress pretentious culture,
    Fight Freedom robbing culture,
    Read and defeat world destroying reading culture,

    I miss my best friends like textbooks,
    They promised to be there, until the i am not academically rusty
    But they are here in these building to change my scholarly looks
    Sitting there in the shelves with me and academically words
    The world reading ambassador Cleo Bonny, yes written discourse

    But why am I here alone?
    The world is waiting for me
    Why am i here alone?
    In that building, the nuclear bomb
    The nature puts everything on earth
    The nature puts everyone on earth
    The nature is looking for only one hero
    Is it you, Cleo Bonny reading envoy
    But why am I here alone?
    With all these books in the Library
    With Human social science, Law faculty
    With administration and commerce, education text books
    Why am I alone
    Cleo Bonny, World Reading culture ambassador
