Catch a wild goat and give it a bath;
Conceal it from the scorching needles of the Sun.
Dress it in the whitest, most regal agbada;
Don a hat between its horns.
Fit its hooves with genuine Italian leather;
Flatter the left forelimb with a Rolex.
Take away the waste yam slices;
Tempt it with Sheraton’s best.
Sweeten it with a brand new tinted Range Rover
So it can travel between watering holes in style.
Award it a billion Naira bank account
And honour it with a title.
Let it sit as the Guest of Honour at your child’s wedding –
Let it even bleat the toast.
All this changes nothing:
It is still a goat.
