FOR LAGOS

I wrote this poem sometimes ago for my sister for a competition. Want to share this with everyone.

Oh Lagos of life
I give you Twale
Out of the shrubs of the west
A city thou hast become
The fragrance of the flowers
And the art of thy city
Lingers in my memory

I pray o Lagos
That thou grow
Futher futherest
Incomparable to the blacks
And above the west
And the flavour of thy city
Shalln’t run dry.
