NO VACANCY

No vacancy….
Two words I’ve come 2 dread
Now indellibly engraved in ma head
Cos numerous times 2 me its been said

I shine my shoes till they mirror my face
Check n make sure all ma “kpali” are in place
Bt as I approach ma destination.I notice a reflex reduction in pace
Cos written boldly there again
Is NO VACANCY,all in upper case….

I’m nw a biological map of lagos
Looking 4 any street on da island?? Ask me I’ll put u on course
Unwanted skills learnt from trekkin round dis town..with an enthusiastic pulse…
Only 2 end ma day with
NO VACANCY and an empty purse…

I know ma shoe itself is tired
But I shall keep aflame hope’s fire
Till d day I shall hear your hired
Instead of this NO VACANCY “sir”….
