Song from the highway, A Poem By Habeeb Ajinifesin
Come find me –
When the yellow yolk shone the brightest
when earth burned like furnace
Where, people swarm like bees
Bothered by how to settle their bills
Look carefully, I’m in between those cars
With my goods, dressed in beautiful rags
Despise me not for my skin is now a burner
Addicted to the heat and emitting river
Mock me not that my legs are the tires of a caterpillar
Bigger and feels pain no longer
My skin cannot become bored nor do my legs become weary
I will rest when I die, now, I will go hungry.

"...I am the voice of reason,
That dance not to the deceitful tone
Of political eloquence and propaganda
I am the voice above religious hypocrisy and sycophancy
Truth is my warrant and change is my cause..."
