Eket 1.0 : Small town problems

Almost anywhere you need to go in this town
Is a fifty naira bike away
through a network of small roads
with regular speed bumps and mean looking potholes.

From home to the supermarkets that do not open on Sundays -
Fifty naira.

From home to the bad live band that plays at Villa Marina - Fifty naira.

From home to the usually overcrowded clubs that are heavy on secondhand smoke - Fifty naira.

From Home to heaven could be fifty naira too
but I'm not in a hurry to find out.
