Native fly: Eze ri ohanye

Aside my clan
Where lions rule,
I have noticed;
Death can’t pull
Kings who multiply.

Immortal they are
Should crown fall,
Turning to gods
Immortals are born,
One at a time.

Have you seen
With naked eyes
A palace without
Royal charisma?
– Kings are Kings.

“Eze ri ohanye”;
When a King
Ascends a throne,
He assumes
Prerogative role.

  2. Eze is King
    Ri mean eat
    Ohanye – gives…

    Meaning that

    1. when a king eats, he apportions.
    Or
    2. A king does not eat alone

    Or

    3. When a king eats, he then gives
