September

September

Droplets of honey scatter through the sky

and burst into song

Busi. Busi. Busi.


Sokuro birds take up the chorus

and troop away from their grassy home

Busi. Busi. Busi.


Labiras* are already on the march:

Rubber sandals, burst runners

patched-up jeans, worn tees

coppery toes, bronzed calves

Flat feet keep pace with the road.


A motor-bike dodges serial potholes

The passengers — three kids and an adult —

bravely cling to the galloping machine

And they all keep pace with the road.


“Buy eggs!” “Fresh yam!” “Sweet coconut!” “Pure water!”

Vendors dodge the cars and buses, the lorries and trucks

As they all keep pace with the road.


Little girl, little boy, what are you waiting for?

Busy Busy Busy

Bu si. Bu si. Bu si.**

Sings the little bird beyond the school gate. 


*Yoruba word for labourer, through assimilation

**Yoruba translation: “Add/Do more”
