TOMATO RHYMES by Kukogho Iruesiri Samson

Read Time:16 Second

Once upon a long-gone time
I was as common as a lazy rhyme
And cheaper than fresh thyme

Today I am a gold bar
My price makes people go “ha!”
A basket of me costs a car!

  1. Mamahannatu – An impassive face often lit up with a smile A mind so old, like it’s been around for a while Uncountable works remain unfinished in a pile Struck by wanderlust; itinerary as long as the Nile

    Truly amazing the avalanche of creativity inspired by the scarcity of tomatoes in the country. The Nigerian media is agog at this new development!
