LAGOS

LAGOS

Lagos - Poem by Ordia Michael

 

In the heart of Yellow with black stripes

Where love is a business deal

Lips are wrapped with lies

And kindness is a sin.

 

In the heart of these restless roads

Lies the struggle for survival

The hunger for greatness flows

The truth is called lie.

 

In this Center of Excellence, our cave

Life and death are forged

Poverty can be tamed

Our soul could be won.

 

In this great city of Lagos

Money must be made

The struggle must pay us

It doesn't matter the way.

 

In this great city of hidden wealth

We must be rich even if it means death.

Ordia Michael
