WRITE ME A POEM (1)


write me a poem about a two boys
when a white boy stick out his tongue,
in mock mimic to a black boy,
the world stand aloof
when a black boy chuckling, roll on the floor,
because ‘half baked bread’ describes white boy,
the world bring down the roof
dummy, this is not about race!
our green ocean is red and wild
no one can sweep the tide away
with a torn umbrella 
write me a poem about Nigeria…
