(For Peter Esoka)

By Tikum Mbah Azonga

You can get it
Yet, you can take it out right now
If you really want
But first, let Peter come through
And deliver today`s dlose of reflection
Peter and us are now like finger and nail
With maleya in the background
And the tune that made them
Shoot to fame spectacularly
What more can you ask for?

Meanwhile, Ecobank is celebrating proximity
And the weighing bridge is announced
Jumping little girls and boys in green
Stoop along the road
And write their names in the shifting sand
And yellow petrol l procession
Is that what you want?
Just that?
And you think you`ve had your fair share
When you can go the whole way
And pick up the jackpot
Come on!
You can get it
If you believe you can.
