Native fly: Greeting a King

Not all chambers are for show
There are highs and there are lows
At the Palace, I hope you know.

Far before the make of phones
From the time of flesh and bone
You may be old but not as the throne

The king of beasts, respects ming
When he hears songs forest sing
And worships; to him, their king.

Any subject who have no prudence
Will eventually bring intense
Sufferings, hunger, and distress

Coated with huge embarrassments
Verboten issues cemented
To himself and his descendants.

When going to a Palace
Kindly ask before a glance
How to greet King; take no chance.

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.

Ebonka (Part2)

image

Son of the soil, the tradition’s dabble
A type never found when lost again
Yet a next-door neighbour love not pain
Like cockroaches, he squeezes through cracks
Fighting tirelessly like the teeth and nails
With all nerves ruthless like a lion in labor…
Writing history with tears from the children of Agan
The faith in the path he begun
Bonded the great Ika Kingdom…
Benedito Dei knew what he saw in him
All from Timbuctu was his poetic Justice
Ebonka returned braver telling Dei stories and his
The difficult in Dei, “Dein”: Ebonka was renamed
The plebs found a king in him, Dein was famed
From the lions heart, his every first sons rules.
