TELEPHONE CONVERSATION (Another Interesting Piece from the Unhindered Goal Anthology)

telephones0

Grin! Grin!! Grin!!!
The dance and song sang by Sony-ericson

After salutation
Parents are church rat
Want better future for children
A man with wide vision
Like an Ocean it is.

“Sorry?”
“What do you really want?”

That’s all I’d been saying
Origin is a murderer
Need a better house of knowledge.
“Oh! That’s awesome”
“You are black?”

Yes I am.

“Truly we can assist
But….”
Within me- Wole Soyinka’s telephone conversation is really real
“Are you there?”
Yes, I am.

“We have gone through your possession
Fantastic and fabulous
Never expect such still happens
Upon all your brother’s tricks
We will get back to you”

Excuse me – You don’t need discrimination
Upstairs matters – full assumption.

“I know your feelings
Lessons have been learnt
Like I said
We will get back to you
Pim!”

After the conversation
Years passed
Can’t say; perhaps today
No reply, no chance
Just like Wole Soyinka’s disapproval.
