The Road can be your friend,
When smooth and tarred
Easy to sight see from,
Allowing you snap non-blurry pictures
For your blog.
On The Road,
The hawkers are just within your reach
It seems like Eldorado
Paved with golden boli*
But when The Road is your enemy,
I wouldn’t wish such for my worst enemy.
It is untarred and jagged
With the accompanying ‘go-slow*’
As it bounces you up and down
You realize you have to ‘go’
But The Road has no toilet for miles.
This is when you know that it has become your enemy.
*boli is roasted plantain usually sold as street food
