One word na Saliva – poetry

3

By Ugo Ude Anna

Relax.

If onyibo supri-supri

dey sweet for ear,

make this capping dull

the sugar, con deliver the message.

After all, truth bitter,

No be sweet mouth.

.

Ground, na every man get am.

Mini skirt no be colour wey sisi Maria dey fly.

Man wey no fit keep himself,

for himself and by himself

naim dey chop sand-sand garri for six feet.

.

Kpor. Kpor.

You dey hear?

Na your coffin dey sound

Say e wear mini-skirt

No mean say na your colour e dey fly

Nothing like green light

E be yes or you off am

Nobody pikin be traffic light.

.

One word, na saliva too plenty

    “Man wey no fit keep himself, for himself and by himself naim dey chop sand-sand garri for six feet”….

    I love this line and every other piece in this work. So well constructed and educative pidgin.

    The crux of the matter is that, self control is key to ward off rape. Thanks for this message.
