IN MY LAGOS

IN-MY-LAGOS.jpglagos-dp-cover-696x696.jpgIn my Lagos

Are the lessons you need for living,

If the crazy ‘ molue ‘ drivers

Do not thrill you,

The angry mob by the road side will.

If the skinny girls don’t take away

Your eye ball , the three men at Ojota will.

This is Lagos,

Here, your dreams are painted

On the canvas of yellow & black.

Here, traffic is like taking attendance

at the gate of heaven.

You must confirm your pocket

As you walk from bustop to bustop…

In my Lagos,

Madness is a choice,

Amebo is integrity,

Freedom is in chains,

Fashion is oxgyen ,

Love is a sham,

Business is business.

If you don’t mind your business,

You will be taught the lesson of EkoAkete!

This is my Lagos!

But there is more to it…

In my Lagos!

What if

the end

was just

a new beginning…

BY NIGHT

600x400.jpgBy night,

you should understand

that a happy

home starts in the morning.

 

Let’s know that

The vestige of  yester night

slept with the moon.

And by morning,

Wake up with revelings

MAD MEN AND A FICTIONAL COUNTRY

Welcome to Nigeria;

The fictional country.

 

You are mad if you

don’t know that

Nigeria is a fiction!

 

I’m mad, and I know it is

a fiction.

I’m not mad because of them

I’m mad because

you thought your dreams

are achievable only

with their long spoons.

I’m also mad,

not because I’v not eaten

but because the larger

hungry planet of masses

will vote again

for change.

 

I’m mad because

we will not change

our diapers

and sing new songs.

I’m mad because

these words are too

light for the sane,

they

will

never

understand

a bit…

 

Only the mad can speak out!

– My Chimamanda Blues –

Chimamanda blues 2.jpgWe Should all be Feminists

because My Americanah

loves Purple Hibiscus (flower).

 

She loves the Thing Around Your Neck.

I’m not talking about the pendant…

But the scars patriachy had

printed on her neck.

She is a strong woman,

And I remind her, always,

 

Our moon may be full

But we share an Half of A Yellow sun…
