Once, when I was travelling somewhere, and our car got stuck in traffic. I was in the back seat and my driver was in the front. That was the period BlackBerry Curve was reigning in Nigeria.

The sun climbs majestically to the sky,
In golden robe from greening bed.
Long-beaked choristers announce your presence,
Purple banner says you’re here.
Smiling king above the earth,
So silent ,

It’s time to spread the joy around
A day has passed, the dream too real
The birds do come back to their sticks.
The sweat is gone, the sight is nice,
Its time to say goodbye to us.
