The poetry is a typical traditional African (Yoruba) poem in English expression.


Native Son

Awon Iya mi ooo
Mama mi ooo
Oh! You kindred spirit

What did Ifa say?
What does Orisha want?
What does Ogun need?

Helpless, we watch
Eku kissed life out
From young Damola

His rebirth sure
Abiku is gone forever
