A lazy man is he who has all the resources
But never indulges his faculty to yield a reasonable income.
Lazy is he who doesn’t value hardwork-
When a student bags 5.0 he raises his head like he sees him not!
We both know who you are:
Your country denied you a good job
But you refused to take to sleeping.
Even if you ply the night-worker’s route,
The truth is you are not lazy.
Let’s raise the flags high for the graduates turned ‘agbero‘;
For the millet grinders that won’t stop at nothing;
For the student entrepreneurs slogging out their guts;
For the academic gurus burning midnight candles;
Even at the face of a gloomy economy they’ve all refused to sleep.
We know who we are,
We won’t let a man who has no idea of our struggles
Define ‘laziness’ for us.
Cheers youth! A toast to our hardwork paying off already.
AGBERO – yourba slang for a bus conductor
