Today you saw me in havy traffic on street
Tomorrow I will be at the Lorry Station
I sell things of everyday life
The bell in my hand but don't be too quick to judge,
Don't think am one of those who turn a brind eye on education,
I too have dreams strike on me like zebras in the wild
Pardon me if my dress has the stain of dirt and perspiration
That's is the evidence of a struggle against life
I am a hawker.
I keep my stuffs open so you can take a glance
Even though flies keep perching on my fruits and toffees
School children wait from dawn to dusk for my arrival with their money in pocket.
Pardon me if I overcharge my young and innocent customers mostly who are in a moving wheel and ignorant of the price
I sell stale items to them.
Some call us men along the road
I sell my things on top of my voice
I come to the lorry station in the burning heat of the sun,this is what life had installed for me, and I hawk to survive
