Destination Nigeria


we say
this bus
has a destination

we keep it running
we keep it
running

hope
our fuel
hoarse with want

our prayers
horsewhip
to an ailing bus

  1. Hi Adura! I detect some angst here. But I'm glad that bus keeps on running!

    Just popped in to say hello and hope all is well with you!

  2. Hi Denise!
    Thanks for popping in. It's nice to hear from you. Hope you're good? Yes, angst is defo one of my emotions right now. Frustration shaking its hand and they're both smiling. But the good news is that it's getting better. I'm getting there:)

  3. Hi Adura - This made me smile... in a way, we're all like that bus, we keep going until we stop.
