Episode 2

I never forget the slums for once, I always visit
there to see my friends, Poppy Mama is
terribly sick and I know she won’t survive
the illness, she died a Month later.
she didn’t
even wait for me to fulfil my promises to
her. Cruel world, any money I have I send it
to Rex and Anthony to rgister in school
and further their education, they won scholarsh¡p
too to finish their Secondary education.
when I received the letter I was so happy.
I remembered the dream we shared Rex
always dreamt to be a lawyer and Anthony
he wants to be a cop, I always see the need to
be a doctor, to save life is what I want to
do and I am determined to offer free
medical care to the homeless roaming
in our streets. Then we will set out to look for
books in the waste bin, or visit homes to beg
for books in any form to read, many kindhearted
people will give us books and many people
will rather burn their old books than to give us.
any money given to me I sent it to my friends,
we visited libraries together to read and research.
we all have the same goal but different dreams.

confess crime that I know nothing about.

me as if they are God, asking me why
did I rape the good daughter of a kindman.
the entire City cried out for my head,
no one wants to associate with me, I was banned
to receive visitors, I was taken to another
cell that I won’t see any form of light.

another time again, WAEC result was published
I had As in all my subjects, I was shown
by Chief and he promised me to never use it,
I cried that day, my friends didn’t even visit
me, darkness and beaten is the only comfort
for my wounded soul, politicians promised
Justice to Chief to obtain favor from him
for the upcoming elections, lawmakers
seat to extend, jail sentence for rape, tears
drop from my eyes, what a world for the helpless.
