There are some skirmishes which no doubt

can only be negotiated over suya and a cold stout

There are some times when friendships may seem vague

but all can be won over a mug of tea and some cake

And indeed there will be moments when things go a bit sallow

and relaxation can only come from correct okra soup with ‘swallow’

BUT for those times when life seems dull and in need of some spice

do yourself a favour and find your answer in a bowl of Jollof rice.
