Covid – 19, just dey ya dey. All dis wan wey you dey para for road, na ya sef you go kill. Ya egungun don enter express. Na to peme remain. I put you on lockdown and kwarantine you to hell faya till lailai in Jesus name Glorified. Amen.
One dey, I just dey my dey, naim I com begin write.
Covid dey ginger for outside
Hunger dey woz me for inside
I try to pam, the thing no work
Ọmọ ìyá, lockdown don turn to knockdown o.
Abeg, who sabi the ancestor wey I offend.
I dream wan kain dream like dat
Say for Naija, we pipu no dey use generator again
So I woke and whilst rubbing my eyes
My neighbor started his genset.
Ogbeni, ji ma sún.
There was light in the morning
There was light in the afternoon
There was light at night
For midnight, I no fit sleep because I dey sure say yawa do gas somewhere.
How light go dey since morning?
Waiting for palliatives
Spent the whole day waiting for palliatives
Slept at night and dreamt I was waiting for palliatives
Woke up the next morning, still waiting for palliatives…
Tuale Iya mi, abeg, wetin be dis paliatives sef ?
