Treasure Island

umoh cyril

(05/12/1995 / Lagos nigeria)


my favorite town to hangout
a place of memories
never a place to logout
everything to reminisce

a place where hawking is phenomenal
where nights are happier
where everything is normal
a town where love is mental

there is no town like badagry
where love is there to marry
a town never dreaming to tary
a home sweet home for laughing

a diabolical town
the origin of black witch clans
a town never lacking of charms
a town of spiritual rulers

a town of flashy cars
a place for lovely house
a place for angry mouse
an air of lice and mould

a place for crying
a place for laughing
a place filled with melancholy
a place and home of harmony

a town of feudalism
a home of hooliganism
a place of loving wives
a town of peace, my town my home my inheritance, my God giving empire.

poet Geoffrey Chaucer

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
