Subsidy or Suddenly – REMIX

Yab Soja-man pieces
Aha!! u go rest in pieces
Spit for Presido eye inside Ikoyi maximum prison
U go realize say U don commit treason

Add sugar and milk powder
For inside Lekki Beach water
Maybe  the alkaline taste go turn sweeter
Afterall, River Mara before be dey bitter.

Write ‘Learner’ as title for back of aeroplane
Dem go feel say na riddle, No blame.
U fit from Lagos visit Seattle with small change
Unto say u be apprentice with effizzy for d flying game.

For tight security for Myne’s party Extravaganza
Two NS strongmen fit stand as Bouncers
Scopeman and Kaycee Na All rounder
DJ Wright-Engineer, Chief Organizer.

I dream see Beyoncee for Ajegunle to be precise
Bend down select, Kai! so Waitii sef dey patronize
At least once.
Sweet rich Naija we need to realize.

Pass through Canal to Canada
E know matter even if your name na Martha
Mr. Faith go peruse Mr. Fate carry you pass Nevada,
Atlanta, Toronto, d journey go sweet pass Mirinda

So for we wey dey write on top Naija Story
Make we dey happii plus jolly
Do our thing as we sabi
Na freeworld, no cause to worry.

Forget Boko, just do our things lovingly
Whether na subsidy or Suddenly
Baba God go arbitrate them definately
‘Cos Na only Him fit release our goods wey dem lock, unfaingly.

    1. @Innocent Pidginized indeed. At least, this should give succor to the sour mood of wounded hearts resultant from the level of insecurity in the country, coupled with Fuel Subsidy biting consequences.

          1. She’s a Nigerian poet, writer of short stories and columnist currently based in the UK. I read recently that she is now a special adviser to the president (i.e Goodluck) but I don’t know how true is that news.

            1. Molara woods, based in the uk alryte, bt she writes in The Guardian on sundays. Never read any of her poems but i read one of her stories at africanwriters.Com. ‘the beaten track’ a nyc one. I think she z here though

            2. @dowell I finally met her somewhere in the Island last week, at a book launch titled “On Broken Wings”….it was really a worthwhile encounter, she gave me an autograph though…

              1. Ah! Lucky you o. Looking forward to attending such forums again where great creative minds unite. I met Odia Ofeimun, Tony Kan et al in my last one in G.R.A Benin which was a book reading.
