my new light bulb just exploded,
but it read “made in Japan”,
and NEPA is “made in Nigeria”
Oh, I forgot, they are not compatible.
I wanted to listen to my cassette tape,
I pressed play, but nothing happened.
Here’s an FM radio and – current too,
Oh I forgot, its half current electricity, thats terrible.
I just made a photocopy,
with an eraser, I wiped everything off,
it was at three Naira per page
“five Naira photocopy is clearer”, said the lady
Now thats really horrible!!
