NOT MY CUP OF TEA

By John Chizoba Vincent

If they like let petrol be one

thousand naira at the station,

It is not my business not at all

I will still have my tea taken

Every morning with Agege bread.

If they like let them find not

The hungry budget paper,

It is not my business not at all

I will still have my tea taken

Every morning with Agege bread.

 

If they like let them create million

Jobs in the inland and the mainland,

It is not my business not at all brother

As far as they did not take my cup of tea

I will still live and drink with Agege bread.

 

If they like let them feed school children

One square meal per day in their hungry

State, sister, it is not my business to know

I will still have my cup of tea sweet as breast milk

Every morning with Agege bread to water down.

 

If they like let them fight over the country,

Let them embezzle all the money here leaving

The poor with nothing to write home about,

It is not my business anyway with them

I will still have my beautiful tea taken daily.

 

If they like let PMB travel all over the world

It is not my business with them at all here,

I will still make my tea in a brownish colour

As far as my cup of tea is not taken from me

I will be as happy as the puppy in my world.

 

If they like let them find the Chibok

girls in Sabimsa forest with Children,

it is not my business to know at all

I will still have my cup of tea taken

Every morning with Agege bread.

 

 

If they like let them repair the roads,

If they like let them bring light to us,

If they like let them stock all the money

Abroad, It is not my business to question them

I will still have my cup of tea taken daily.

 

I will only react when my cup is taken;

When my cup is taken from my mouth.

So long they don’t take my cup of tea

From my savouring hungry mouth, I will

be fine, let madness rule and ruine them all fool.
