Daily Prompt: Stranded/Westward Bound

Daily Prompt: Stranded.

Stranded….
That’s mighty scary! I have seen it in movies and it has happened to someone I know…
What did they do?
This is what he did and I had the pleasure of being a part of getting him out of it.

Stranded in a Ibadan
No bowls for soup but
Pillows abound to lay my head
Promises. Promises
I wait

I am bound to Badagry
Yes, I am bound to Badagry
My journey begins while I lay my head
Hard against my borrowed pillow

It is dawn
Nothing will keep me from my journey
I am heading west but
With no wings to fly,
I can only wait

Stranded
Not branded
Aha! there is hope
Its in the Western Union

Westward bound
Ill lay my borrowed pillows aside
No wings but feathers to tide me through
I am westward bound!
