Because I Am Lazy - Poem by Asaolu Abayomi

Because I am Lazy
I slept not for nights
I won the realistic war
I sponsored a bit of it
I achieved the difficult
Against the pain
I survived

Because I am Lazy
I moved so fast
I moved so right
I focused really big
I ignored reality
You I thought would make it easier
Alas I betrayed myself
Walking and called it working

Because we are lazy
Autumn gave us wheelbarrows
Sunny gave us transistor Rd
Radios
Below sane man commissioned a transformer with a red carpet
The one not lazy stole a precious maize from our decision farm
A rider broke his neck
His ride can set up a thousand others
Yet we gave him money to be treated

Because you called me lazy
Should I now cry?
No I wouldn't
If need be to cry
You must be the reason
You yes you
Your cohorts and you

Because I am uneducated
I fought hard to win
The first grade I couldn't attain
At least I got the second positioned grade
Before I got that
I got what you couldn't produce

Who then is lazy?
Is it me that walked 20,000 steps daily?
Or your Rider prototype
Who then is uneducated?
Me who endured a kwashiorkor system?
Or your prototype who knows nothing about the system?
There must have been a change in your system
Anus is replacing the head
