Addict – Amatesiro Dore


Craw-craw in your brain
Lapa-lapa of the mind
Yansh dey scratch you.
Your lips alone
In search of extra large
Saliva soaked stubs.

Sluts for life
Fags of cigars
Pairs of amala ass
Lubed with gbegiri
Served by superman
With mushroom on pestle.


Sucking is hobby.
His stick of suya is
Liable to live longer
Than packs of cancer.

Be prepared with
Sticks and circles
Lighters and lubricants
Smokers are suckers.

Fucking sweet
Smoking good
Twin towers
Sucked to death.
