Substitute for ice

Written by: Okwunna Steven. F. Chukwuyama

I 
had 
realised
that 
the 
size
of 
the 
ice
was 
nice,
but 
the 
price
didn't 
recognise
my 
sacrifice.

So,i 
had 
to 
compromise
the 
ice
for 
some 
rice;
to 
minimise.

But 
some 
spies
came 
to 
join 
Me 
In 
my
 rice;
promising 
to 
buy 
some 
ice
after 
the 
rice.
But 
In 
Their 
eyes;
I 
saw 
lies.

So 
i 
refused 
to 
harmonise,
but 
dey 
criticised,
and 
threatened 
to 
jeopardise,
if 
i 
didn't 
give 
dem 
my 
rice.

I 
also 
realised
that 
dey 
had 
devised
a 
wicked 
device
to 
my 
demise
But 
i 
was 
wise.

So 
i 
specialised
a 
plan 
and 
to 
their
surprise;
I 
took 
off 
with 
my 
rice
for 
miles;
to 
get 
somewhere 
nice,
And 
enjoy 
my 
rice...
