Beautiful they say, the world revolves round
And I danced in the wind with ecstasy,
Scavenging the desire that burns in me.
I sought the naked moonlight.
Listened to twilight tales in expectant of bond –
Without exception to flowing thoughts,
Sweat mixing with blood.
I may be wrong, I accept
But I’m caged in distress,
Filled with regrets and beg for redress.
The prowess of your ineffable black beauty,
Is nothing to be compared with the Mary Kay Vivian deceived me with.
For your superfluous brainy foundation, she offered just the surface I’m sorry; falling for her garbage.
Okun and Osa,
Won’t you carry my message to sweetheart?
If it’s to pay the king’s gong bearer or
Tell Simi’s husband to replay your favourite song; Orente
If you delay returning, I may be late
For you’re the blood that runs in my vein
And the heart that pumps my blood
Ifemi, shakara has finished.
Adunni is the name of a maiden
Okun and Osa means Ocean and Sea
Ifemi means my love
