The Invasion

Lagos has been invaded by them
Everywhere i turn
They are there
Just everywhere
Sometimes they are a hazard
Sometimes they are just there
But an hour cannot go by in this town
Without an encounter with at least one of them
I am sure they can be shaded in all colors
But Lagos is particularly plagued by the blacks and greys
How did it come to this?
When did my city become suffocated by their presence?
If you happen to have one of these
And you go someplace
Trying to identify yours can be a major feat
Because there are guaranteed to be a thousand and one of them
That look exactly like yours
Lagos has been invaded by them
Everywhere i turn
They are there
Just everywhere
I am talking about TOYOTA COROLLAS
*LOL. I have no idea what and why i have done this but i guess i got my inspiration on the drive in to work this morning. Have a great weekend!*

I think it is because it is easy to maintain and a good looking car at the same time. I am praying to buy one for my Mom this xmas, it is not like she needs it but I have this mindset that it is a Toyota and it holds up well in Africa. I see a lot of them here too, lol. Have a blessed weekend too Dear.

In my head and around me said...

You are right, they are EVERYWHERE.

I think they (Elizade- Toyota car dealers) offered a great deal so banks and individuals took them up on it.

This is their time. Remeber how Peugots used to be everywhere? My dad had 2.
