PIOUS OKORO

OIL GAME

Drop the name game
You have a name

Drop the booth licking
You are not a dog

Drop the pretence
You are not a chameleon

Drop nodding to everything
You are not a lizard

Drop beaming your thirty-two
You are not sixteen

Drop the monkey oil game
The land is aflame

Drop the blame game
The blood on the ground
Cries out aloud
