Lagos Boy

By: Babawilly

Helep mi henjoy dis poem written in honour of O.H himself (Oluwatomi Hilfiger), the quintessential Lagos Bobo.


The bore hole is dead
The pump is but gone
But I've fetched all the water
I'm tired to the bone
My uniform is rumpled
My sandals are torn
But my confidence is high
I've got my sharp RayBans on.

The puddle of water
Was sprayed on my back
The Danfo's conductor
Laughed as they went by
I tripped on a stone
And stripped flesh down to bone
But my confido high
I've got my sharp RayBans on.

I wave to a friend
She pretends not to see
The world stares at me
For my fly is undone
I zip up and cry
I see blood in my hands
But my confidence is high
I've got my sharp RayBans on.

I stood at the corner
And struck a really fine pose
They tossed coins my way
For they thought I was blind
I sweat like an Awu
But feel cool inside
But my confido high
I've got my sharp RayBans on.

I bought it on cedit
I now miss my school meals
But with eyes shaded up
I feel belle-full
I don't have a math's set
My vest and socks all have holes
But my confidence is high
I've got my sharp RayBans on.

I am blind folded by fashion
But yet I can see
It's made of mere plastic
Yet makes me so strong
I could fight a big Lion
And fly with the Eagles
Because my confido high
I've got my sharp RayBans on.

My eyes are a mystery
My tears you cannot see
I see all the world
But it just can't see me
The dust and the sunshine
Obeys my commands
My confidence is high
I've got my sharp RayBans on.

The End
