Big Pockets, Small Minds

You would think that with the way people run away from poverty, there’d be a massive abyss between them and the poor thing.  You’d imagine that the race towards fast money and cars would give them a huge head start and they would never have to look anything like poverty. You’d think poverty (because it is poverty and it has no food or clothing or drink) would be too weak

I Know Her Kind

Immediately I saw her, I knew her kind  With the long fixed lashes contrasting with her skimpy bum shorts  I knew her kind.  She shifted from one foot to the other and popped her gum and I smiled because I know her kind.  She would stand sideways at the ATM so that everyone would see the huge wades of cash that she keeps gutting out of the machine.  Of course;

Owambe!

I have never been a party person. But lately, circumstances have led me to three different parties in just about three months (I know.. for some people that’s not a lot). These parties have led me to some conclusions – Nigerians are interesting and beautiful people. They spend money. They eat. They give souvenirs. They DANCE!
