An hour with Lagos
Tree grow blemish on the blunt surface of tars,
Drains of dying filth building drench of shallow waters across the surface of offences.
A beautiful city of noise,
A land born on the struggle of waves and wind across the ocean.
A street of driven tussle beneath the shades and toss of survival.
Behind the brown sea of the lagoon, the shreds of the belly across the
eyes of waters.
Breeds dying to the loophole of the. streets thirsty and hungry for the sore of crumbs.
I stand between the stampede of
human brawns feeding their breeds by the effort of the weak.
The struggles are hard to breathe,
Celebration are dangerous to
