WAITING FOR A BUS

We have been waiting for a bus
Whose body-fitness wil be faultless,
Seats will be comfortable--
While sitting there, we won’t have our dress torn,
Our ankles won’t bleed getting hurt by the corner of its 
handle.

The driver of the bus will be well-balanced.
He won’t drive like a drunkard.
The car won’t run over a man,
Not even over a puppy.

We have been waiting for the bus in a long que.
Our backs are being burnt by sunrays.
Our eyes are being red like ripe peppers.
Something more dangerous may happen in our life. 
Yet we have been waiting for the bus 
That will carry us in our fixed destination.
Translation: Sayeed Abubakar
