Tomato

tomato is the new economic index.

Now, you can exchange three like this TOMAT3 for a bus ride from Ikeja to Yaba.

Or for two bags of pure water.

Or for two bottles of thinned colas.

Or for four robo-robo chicken eggs.

Or for two one-hundred-naira recharge cards.

Or for one litre of petrol — with some change handy to munch on the new, revised, slimfit gala.

My friend says Jollof rice is out for now; fried rice a better deal.

We will be glad things have changed when the people can reach out for basketfuls again.

Until then, tomato.

Feel free to share your thoughts... real people only, please!
