Lagos Transport Wahala

As we move, the driver asks them to pay and they start paying 100 naira, The driver says he cannot collect it and suddenly..Okay, i don’t know what happened, I shaa know that they start abusing someone sitting, telling him to mind his business, raining abuse after abuse like a combo breaker on the poor dude.

 You can’t complain as the heat and breeze alternates between every one of them. You just find yourself squeezing your face and trying and begging God if he truly he exists not to make you have an Asthma attack there and then.

Easy Choices

“That’s why I love you” Krysty said, reassured. If Ndidi was there, everyone would have to behave, because both sides also knew him and he got along well with everyone, so it would balance things out.

Yesterday I Died

My vacuum filled with hate and resentment.  
Nothing is left of me. All that is left is dead and rotten


She ran through the pathway and when she got to the riverbank, she sat down and began to sob. Deep down she knew the answer to Fred’s question and she didn’t like it.

Moby Dick

I sat at my table. It was Wednesday. I had sandwiches and a ginger beer on Wednesdays. I sat silently observing everyone around me. A woman who was trying to shut up her two year old in vain, the potbellied man who looked at the daily paper like he was going to enter into its black and white depths, the sullen looking teenager who wouldn’t stop chewing on gum, smacking his lips in sickening fashion.


In a galaxy not so far away, I stood in the command centre of the ‘Sinero’ (don’t ask i have no idea why we named it that either) and took in the sights I was privy to through the strong Plexiglas that stood between us and outer space.

The space station was the pride and joy of our defence corps; it has regularly been defined as the sturdiest structure in the world.

A Happy Poem

You once asked me to write a happy poem

“Why so gloomy babe? The world is beautiful”

For you My Love,

I could write about the sun rise

Kissing my face gently at dawn

As I wake, tangled with you

After long nights

I won’t mention the emptiness

I now feel at those moments

Those same rays, now unwelcome intruders

When I am here alone

My only company, the demons that you left
