Where am I?
Its a little too hard to differentiate
Either I’m still with this 80 year old lady selling herbs by the roadside
Or I’ve travelled on another long road trip with my mind
…..that’s the word
At least there’s a word for my condition……Thanks to a friend of mine
Why the squeeze on my face?
If only you had an idea what this woman has mixed up in these herbs…
Like she put the whole universe together in one cup…
Plus that burning taste of alcohol…that must be the sun
So why won’t I frown…
As I deliberate myself to take in scum
To light my chest ablaze
To bring sadness to my tongue
My friend William says it’ll help for my back ache…
He says it also makes sex last long…
With what I have to go through to take this crap in…
My Man William had better not be wrong
never tasted anything so bitter!
Plus my lungs just lit up like my blood got mixed with hot water!
So I frown….
road constructions don’t make things any better
People cover their noses and skitter
“Sipping and staring” -Order of the evening
seems everyone but me and William have somewhere they’re going
And this Arabian kid won’t let me be….
Pulling the sleeve of my shirt….
asking me for money
Barking up the wrong tree
Even if she searched me with an x-ray machine….cant get a penny out of me
Its not you kid, its me…and the Fucked up economy!
Can’t even get a job..
Went for an interview last week…
After nearly strangling myself with a tie I barely know how to knot…
I still didn’t get the spot
“We’re sorry, we just need someone with more experience in our type of work”
Suck my Cock!
And the other day I was talking to my uncle If he could hook me up with something…
Then he advised I went for my Masters…
“these days you need an MSc before you can start working”
Oh that’s a great idea uncle, how come that never occurred to me!
When I was a kid, all i heard was “education is the key”
That all you need is to study through highschool and get a Bachelor degree
now what you’re telling me is I need an “MSc”
And maybe after that, you’d say I need a “PhD”
What I need is a Jay Ho Bee!!!
Grew up all my life trying to find who I am
Then the grown ups would say…
“Don’t worry kid, all you gotta do is study hard in college…when you graduate, you’d be a man”
Nigga got out now and still don’t know where he stands
Don’t know where he’s going…don’t even got a plan
You ask me what I learnt in college?
I’d tell you if I can…
But how numbers combine to make computers, I still don’t understand!
Put me next to a shoemaker and ask me who’s better
I hold a college degree and can write a formal letter
He can add sums of money, but can’t add up numbers
But he can make leather hold rubber to my feet and make my legs look better
Now won’t that refine my dress sense?
All I can make is a sentence!
Whoever turns out richest is who’s better!
While I was in college busting my butt for grades
Some of my friends was scheming on ways to get Paid
You know That money making scheme that dudes do these days….
You stay up all night, read your ass out…
Hustle to get A’s
Then your numbskull hommie drives pass you the next morning in a Mercedes….
Makes your efforts feel like a waste
That shit is Depressing….
Pushes ones mind to the edge
They say “No knowledge is wasted”
But sadly time is wasted acquiring the wrong knowledge
This shit tastes awful…
Its like I’m drinking from the gutter!
What did this old lady put in this shit?!!!
And William’s downing it like it’s orange soda
Y’all are a crazy….
To think that this shit cost a hundred Naira
Yeah yeah “it’ll work for my back ache”, whatever!
Would the shit work any less if you add a little sugar?!!
Just a few more sips…it’ll all be over
And meanwhile, some guy just parked his whip right in front of me….
Looking all brand new….
Looking Like the car of my dreams…
And a girl I used to bang is riding shotgun
You gotta be kidding me!
“Tolu”, is it?
I can’t recall her name
But her ass was so mean, friends of mine fucked around and named it “Bane”
I guess not much’s changed….
She’s dressed a little differently
But The ass looks the same
Plus now she’s riding around town with some guy in a range
Guess she finally got to her “bus stop”
I know what she’s thinking….
She probably looking at me like my life’s all messed up….
Dressed all raggedy…
drinking crap from a cup
While she on the other hand done fucked her way to the top
She looked my way just now, but she probably won’t say hi
If you ask her what happened to us, she’d say I dumped her….made her cry
Tell your side of the story
Easy for you to blab cos you didn’t know the other the guy you was fucking was my hommie
And its funny how people be crying that they man/woman cheated….
You ain’t crying cos he cheated….
You crying cos he beat you to it
Cos you never cheated don’t mean you was faithful….
It just means you were yet to do it
So we’re in the same level….
The Adele that cried “Rolling in the deep”…
Is the same girl that said “I’m sorry First Love”
That’s why I try to stay indifferent….
let non of it phase me…
These girls I be messing around with…
I know they don’t love me
Yeah you fuck me and three other guys…
That shit don’t bug me!
So long as we can leave everything behind the door….
You can fuck Tom, fuck Dick and fuck Harry
That’s the least of my headache….
With what runs in my head these days…
My mind be breaking speed limit
Think about this, think about that
Think about my thoughts and what I’m thinking in it
How terrible is that
Well, thinking is different from worry…
So maybe it isn’t so bad
Alota shit are a puzzle that I try to figure out
But why am I the only one bothered…
Everyone else seem ignorant
I guess right now every lady is too busy struggling to find who’s going to make her a wife
And every guy’s still trying to figure out how he’s going to make it in life
While me on the other hand I’m puzzling on this thing called “Life”
Think so much sometimes I hope my brain don’t bust a blood pipe!
But then I’m still dumb!
I’ve seen people with far more wisdom
Sometimes I make the dumbest mistakes….no smart choices to choose from
I guess its easy to pass sound judgements
But hard to make wise decisions
I’d tell you “they’re all the same! Just fuck her, but don’t wife her”
But when I wind up in the same shoes, its either something about her eyes…
…or something else I like about her
Then I get all emotional…
And I kiss her forehead
And then I end up writing ’em shit I usually post on here!
Like those eyes of a bird
Like that freckled asian
But I’d still let it slip away….
I’m not ready to be that man
Cos Some niggas have sex just one time…
And they’re paying for diapers
And they’re paying child’s tuition.
As broke as I am right now…
feeding myself is feeding a nation!
So if you ask me…
I wouldn’t wanna get myself into such situation!
Easy to pass sound judgements….
Hard to make wise decsions
My cup is finally empty….
Thank you old woman….. Although it feels like you’re the one who should thank me
And now William’s trying to call a bike….
I told him “call a cab for me”….
Not with the crash I had last week…
The shit was pretty ugly
Had me “Suspended in air”…..
The outcome was really rough
And though With the road constructions out here…
getting a cab might be tough….
But if Its a bike i have to take…
Then I’m afraid I’d rather walk…
what do you know….
Here comes a pickup truck
