Not So Deadbeat

They want to slice the apple with a cutlass.
Last last, everyone na judge.
When the bullets come flying, everyone dodges.
When the deed is done, everyone is out analyzing.

But are we any better?
Lagos big boy but mama’s wrapper is torn.
Blown man but Papa has to toil
Big boil under your armpit but you checking mine.

“He should do better. She should do better…”
Surprisingly, you never ask more from you.
You are content with self-mediocrity.
When it comes to me, you demand perfection.

I won’t give in to your expectations.
You be the judge and I’m the case.
Your judgment won’t bother me though.
I will just keep doing me.
