Silence Is The Best Answer
It takes rain to restrain the thirst of harmattan.
It takes silence to chase away foolishness here and there.
People will make rumour their gold,
Will blow you abuses like breezes_
Do not quarrel, do not argue, do not fiat;
You were taught in your primary school,
Silence is the best answer for a fool.

Anaphora is contained in the first stanza of this poem.
Anaphora is a poetic device that consists of repeating a
sequence of words at the beginnings of lines in a poem, thereby lending them emphasis. It is contrast to epistrophe (or epiphora) which repeats words at the ends of lines in a poem. Example is "Let America Be America Again" by Langston Hughes (1902-1967).
