Dark days, these days
Who woulda thought?
When just a few years ago,
We were young and carefree,
Teenagers without a care in the world,
When our most important problems were the boys we liked and which friends were snitching,
Physics, maths and chemistry were the best,
Government, literature and yoruba we looked down on,
It was all fun though.
Who woulda thought?
That it would end like this?
Who woulda thought?
That one by one, we’d drop,
Like over-ripe mangoes off of the tree,
One… Two… Three…
Is that all? Do I dare hope?

But life goes on right? While we wait…?
