POET ON RAMPAGE DAY 7

Omo niyi
Omo nide
Omo lewa
Omo leye
Omo laseyinde

Ina ku afi eeru b’oju
Ogede ku a fi omo e r’opo
Bi aladi o si ni ile
Omo e nii jogun ebu

Blessed be the womb that bore
Blessed be the seed therefrom
Blessed be the life giver
Blessed be the life given

May we not bear children for sorrow
Nor sire offspring for reproach
May they surround our table
At the twilight of our days
And guard our gates in old age

Omo lere
Omo lara eni.
