agbada and babariga
etibo and babariga
never had we a man in suit
piloting the affairs of the nation
khaki and berets
swagger and muskets
one takes down the other
from one military junta to another
since we didn’t possess sense
when electing another babariga
can we have sense and at least
get a suit wearing president in power?
all preceding presidents wore no suits,
because of beer guts and pot belly?
this grand pa, though senile and rail thin
is neither wearing suits
nor brain than suits
shouldn’t we, at least, for tomorrow’s sake
elect a man on suit who wouldn’t ganduje
the treasuries in his babariga?
maybe it’s the suit that’ll break the jinx
