I used to be superstitious

Towards cats, why I dislike

Them but I need them real

Badly as my house got

Invaded by rodents so

I turn to them and dogs

To control these and then

Feeding them like I do

With my people as I have

Nothing better to do and use.


Have to do it

Don’t enjoy and trust cats

But I have to do it for God

Caring for them like I do

With the dogs despite

Wanting to kill them too

I have to let go for now

And humble myself for

All my foes here in Lagos.
