Lagos


I know of a city
Within its walls are found
The duo of hustle and pleasure
I know of a city
Where painful pleasures are administered
Where only the fittest are opportunity to survive

If all wishes were oceans
Villagers would willingly become sailors
And make lagos their final destination
Aggressively resisting any possible evacuation

What a crowded municipal to behold
Cars are soldier ants on the road
Patience is seldom exhibited by commuters
Noise pollution tops the list of unavoidables

If u reside and succeeds in lagos
That gives you the passport of the required impetus
Needed for survival anywhere in the world
Where human beings are found

I know of a city
Yea I know of a city
Where brothers relate like strangers
Where tongues and speeches unitedly varies

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
