think of a Naija policeman
think of a the color of the Naira
think of the color of a Naija number plate

Black helmet, black uniform.

Green and free.
Blue? You release a green.

Red? Don’t leave go of a red,
Not even a green,

Nobody’s talking pink here,
Make life better. Otherwise,

It could be a black day
Better still a red day.

You’d simply be mailed
Beyond the deep blue sky.

Red eyes, brown/black teeth,
Would libel you

A bloody red thief.
God help you to skip past the

Red zone.
