Once upon the Lagos Lagoon…

  Once upon a noon, The Lagos Lagoon, to me it croons, Men like machines I see, Hefty, black and built, Skins glistening, Plastered in treacles of salty fluids. Like wet clothes, The raging sun they gulp in large dose, In a quest were all done, For food on the table, they do their arduous…
