The Devil In The Rat

This particular rat troubled us in our apartment in 2017. We tried every trick to kill the rat for months, it will always escape like the cat with nine lives.

Nigeria Election 2019; The People

ni’bo ni oruko mi wa?   That was everyone’s question   As they keep searching for their names   On the register pasted on the wall  Excitement on their faces   Anxious to join the line and vote!  As I watch every gesture every smile   And excitement trying to understand   Why!  Old!
