Their children attend Harvard

Their children attend Harvard

By: Ayankola Ahmed


Their children attend Harvard

Ni irọwọ irọsẹ

You, government-owned institution

Ni tipatipa

Yet you fight your people because of them

Are you crazy?

Their children do not need to search for jobs

But nothing sure for you!

Yet you call yourself a die-hard fan

Well, dedicated spectator

Their children drive luxurious cars

Awọn National Property

You drive your Legediz-Benz

Iwọ natural poverty

Their children have peace of mind

Iwọ many non-existent enemies

Awọn oni “loyal comrades”

Iwọ oni ‘frenemies’

Irọ lásán!
