Nigerian Poetry: 'Tomato Rhymes' by Kukogho Iruesiri Samson

 

"A basket of me costs a car!"

Once upon a long-gone time

I was as common as a lazy rhyme

And cheaper than fresh thyme

 

Today I am a gold bar

My price makes people go “ha!”

A basket of me costs a car!

 

Kukogho Iruesiri Samson is an editor at Words Rhymes & Rhythm, Nigeria’s number one poetry platform.
