My names are Uchechukwu Musa Abiola
…Sometimes I’m Adanna Aisha Bola
i am that student who learnt from a cracked blackboard
filled with half-thoughts, scribbled by hands bored
authored by blank minds needing enlightenment
excuse my folly, I need mental realignment
you’ll find me in Lagos, Onitsha and Kano
just another youth carrying the jobless-kwano
i’m doomed for I have no skills to earn me wealth
Sometimes, I don’t even know how my names is spelt!
As I said, Iam Uchechukwu Musa Abiola
…Sometimes, many times, I’m Ada Aisha Bola
*Kwano – Hausa word for plate
I am a member of the WRR editorial team.
