They used me. And left me.
You found me where they kept me.
You picked me up gently.
Though i was a tricycle
Not a Bentley.
I was once a hero
Now reduced to zero
Wón mán fi mí k’érò
When i was driven by Baba Bello.
I worked and toiled
My engine boiled
Took kids to school
Lifted laborers’ tools.
In sun, in rain
Time and again
I saved the day
Though my boss got the pay.
He got rich and bought a danfo
Left my remains at Isò Pákó
For my parts to be scavenged by Mallam Tanko
Who owns the faded green barrow.
I did my best
But you left me
Put me to the test
And i did excellently.
My fate now, i know not
I’m so hollow
Like a doughnut.
My ruined shell is carted away
Maybe for repair
Or maybe for decay.
But I did my best
Remember me that way
I changed my world
And played my part
I was the best in my day.” #Lagos #labor#laborer #transport #streetphotography#poetry #photopoetry #nigerianwriters#photography #phonephotography#phonephotographer #wheelbarrow#Lagos 

 

Who is McAwhy?…A poet whose words aren’t enough so he made photos of them.
