Let my verse nudge your consciousness

To the standing mirror before you

The sun shines in sorrow

The moon moans

The sludge of supremacy

Causes their nauseous nonsense

But you are the easement of all circumstances

The dialogue of naked soles

Caught on your tongue’s lullaby

To sleep the heirs of men’s agonies

Never feel as warrior, else,

Adversity overtakes your lullaby

Never feel inferior, else,

Nations lack your value

And run into chaos

Bada, Yusuf Amoo

Lagos
