Why should you look like coal
Not yellow like ripe Pawpaw?
Indeed, you are Arewa obinrin
Your monthly feeding bill
Is dwarfed by the price of the cream
That maintains your artificial colour
Are you not Arewa? It’s no surprise
I know, to have your choice of men
You need to be as white as snow
When your skin protests
My dear Arewa, don’t call it suffering
