A Father's Advice to a Son

Posted on at

Go to school
Don’t be a fool

Do your studies
Not tend to ladies

Don’t waste time
That historical crime

Respect your mobile phone
Or you’ll be blown
Use it for information and emergency
Or you’ll be lost at sea

Read books
And more books

Street sales is not a job
If you follow the mob

Don’t envy the bus crews
Their lives ain’t a cruise

Don’t start with loose butts
Or off cuts

You’ll never afford silver foil
Nor know where to toil

“Loose coins,” will frequent your lips
Will be yours but hated tips

You’ll turn to “Wari Cup”
No beer is served in a cup

Loose butts, off cuts
Are weedy sluts

Your intellect will be raped
And you’ll be scraped

Into prison
Or on the run

This ain’t my dream
