1. In class, and you’re making noise with your friends.
2. When your name is on the list of noise makers in class, but hard guy.
You think it will pain me?
3. When you hear your name but you start forming sleep.
4. When they flog your friend in front of you and the cane touches his soul.
5. And you are just there watching like.
How will you now beat us if we kill someobody?
6. When they finally flog you and you don’t cry.
7. And you just look at your class captain like, “We go jam after school”.
8. You get home and they’ve set family meeting on your head.
Haba. What did I do today?
9. Your father goes all “…you’re a very useless boy. I’m highly disappointed in you.”
That one is for yourself.
10. And then your mother calls you to the corner to remind you of how she carried you for 9 months and all that.
Mummy please just flog me lemme be going.
11. But now you’ve grown up and you finally have sense.
