BIRTHDAY RAP FOR SCHOLAR EXCEL
By then we were almost 2yrs to d course.
Our innocence, shame, fears – all buried at main-gate.
Shy girls, resumed as professional prostitutes,
Timid boys, resumed as balling bad boys.
Fashion, the dreaded disease that killed our propriety!
He came in through direct entry,
His confidence & personality still young and trembling.
The girls didn’t shop his lane at first,
He wasn’t a Bonke David- the fashion forward of the team.
Meanwhile, a god was with us, we never knew.
Dr Bode has a spectacle for syntax stars,
both real and fakes.
Like a golden fish,
he was spotted as d god of syntax.
Under his feet the temple of syntax was built.
The way he answers syntax questions skillfully like Messi on the field,
The way he builds syntactic sentences like Noah of the flood,
all made me hide under the long benches of A1
and covered myself wit thick duvet of shame!
Like a sniper’s bullet, very fast and furious,
He had become the syntax SUG president of our class.
Famous as Efe of Big Brother Naija, 2017
A fancy field of the girls’ fantasy.
” Excel wait oo, Excel I go follow u go house oo,
Excel na me and u go go night class oo, Excel I go follow u go mosque oo, Excel…” We no hear word for class again!
But I knew they were after two things:
his brain and a narrow ‘C’.
Excel, how many of them still call u today?
Girls are wicked with wings!
O ye mighty men of Uniben, look at Excel!
Keep climbing the literary ladder my friend.
Very soon we shall meet at the top to drink red wines with words.
Happy birthday to my friend, my Editor!
Friends, what are u waiting for?
Ubara Obaro, Writer, Delta State.
