Baba Sade rides his jalopy around town
from road sides, to bus stops, his eyes shine
looking for a sugar baby to pick up
to spend his money or for a hookup.
Baba Sade decides to go one night
unlike the day time when he picks his sights
he drives from island to mainland
with only N2,000 in his hand.
His eyes finally land on a target
somewhere around Yaba market.
He scrolls down his window
shouting, "Hello baby, where you dey go?"
It only takes two blinks of the eye
to realize he has landed in fire.
Mama Sade leans on the window
saying, "Eh eh, na so you waka around dey do?"
