Read Poem: The Icon Of My Town


Read Poem: The Icon Of My Town



In the year nineteen ninety nine

A man clocked eighty eight years

With seventy seven cars

And sixty six houses

And fifty five firms

And forty four factories

And thirty three tenants

In his Lekki apartment

His twenty two trucks

Drove round my town

While his eleven wives

Were queen to
the eyes;

But had no child.

He had no child


And many eyes cried

And many minds wondered

Why such icon of my town

Stooped to suicide

At the very night

Of his eighty eight birthday

In the year nineteen ninety nine?
