Standing by my door
Gazing down the busy street
“Same old”,”same old” it said to me
“Nothing has changed”, I sighed and agreed.
Bank dem still de charge me for maintaining card wey dey my pocket
I still dey hold on for customer care, e be like say dem go toilet
No, I no download YouTube or use automatic updates
D website no gree open but una chop my credit I shouted and cut the line.
Is today not the same as yesterday
NEPA still took light when the rain started
Mosquitos still sang their songs and drank my blood without permission
And I am still browsing the Internet staring at cars I can’t afford.
Yusuf is still the shoemaker
He is still audaciously placing his sports bets
Still boasting about how he would wear his babariga when he cashes out
By Sunday evening, he will return weeping and blaming Athletico Madrid for cutting his money.
************************There is also Odeku the mechanic
Spending all his earnings on the girl that sells paraga
Deceived, by her fake hips and false eyelashes
Wetin I sabi, make I drink my koko and kunu mixture first.
What of Aunty Patty and her salon
That is where you go to get the latest updates of what happened in other peoples houses
Nothing ever escapes her notice and tongue
Dem don beat am taya, still, she no go mind her business.
I complained that everything is boring one day
So Baba Kamo offered to help me and change the situation
Something about mixing Codeine with Bayelsa water was his recommendation for being happy
My wife eyed me, naim I com tell am say, I no want.
Standing by my door, I had a vision
I became the proud owner of a Bugatti Veyron car
Na just shinikini 3.4 million USD be im cost
For this 2020, I must hammer, as nothing pass God.
