Not more than eleven kilos,
That can lead to six feet,
So smooth without traffic,
Tempting to place the right foot
On the last pedal,
Zooming off Island to Mainland.
With floating pillars,
Back view of Civic Centre,
Disappearing to see Iyana-Oworo,
Thereafter Adekunle junction,
To the Iduganran palace and Adeniji.
Simplifying temptation cum danger,
Excess access to maimland,
Alone or with others,
Plunge into the deep,
Race or fault on the bridge,
Final destination: Mainland or Maimland.
