Was trapped at the garage for two hours
As they search endless for passengers
We lament in the bus dungeon
It wasn’t my route, a bad trial

Other hours spent at Mowe Road
Two elephant vehicles clashed
No solution seems to be in sight 
As we all suffered it.

Options came from co-travelers
To alight at the next town
Or to get to Ado-Ekiti
Dwell either at the garage 
Or better still at the Driver’s abode 
I shook my head in alarm
God is the safest option, I said
As we discussed, we were still trapped.

20th November 2007

Still in the bus on my way to Ado-Ekiti.
