*IBILE TI YEWA EGBA*
Our matched ratchet reckless world slumber,
Thy *Alaafin* whispers death to men,
No legs was bearing its name,
Like millions of lives In debt.
our shame bears your name,
Pouring agony of pains into thy lake,
One word kills thousands of fools,
Numerous kings dealing with folks.
These *Egbas* drinks like drunkard on and on,
They shed tears like marine-water,
Peace unto who?they begin war,
Like I was never born in those days.
Tell me your future *Egba*?
Who created you *Yewa*?
Who looks like you *Lisabi*?
Whose shadow is this *Olumo*?
children dancing with drums *Ewele*,
Not minding the sorrows at noon *Jeje*,
Our foots stands on roots *Fijabi*,
Who will bear us witness *Ilari*?
I rested on a rock called *Olumo*,
Where we lay and hide for wars that cometh,
Jesus wept? Isn’t in our diary,
*Ogun and sango*was our fathers then.
My eyes Saint the joy of it,
Like I was moving to *Orisabunmi*,
The woman of honor In white garment,
*Ibile ti yewa*,our motherland in native-tongue.
*GIANT-PEN MAKING IMPACT*
