  1. SEPARATION EVENT’S PRELUDE

    Have the walls been built?
    Fear God!
    Have the forest places been inhabited?
    … Extol His Greatness!
    Have man conquered the earth to completion?
    Fear God!
    Those who know the time
    May publish the sign…,
    Each line
    A seal
    For every 200 miles.
    Fear God,
    Raise His praises
    So HIGH !

    ANOTHER LONG WAY AHEAD

    E be like say
    Dis drama
    we dey act here
    Don dey near its end…

    De stage itself
    Don dey flicker
    Like say
    Its sets don dey slumber…

    E be like say
    Dis drama
    We dey act here
    Na complete dirge in suspense…

    De major actors themselves
    Don dey ‘facebook’
    Like say
    Dem no know what’s up…

    E be like say
    Dis drama
    We dey act here
    Don reach time we face out the real…

    De costumes and its designers
    Don dey go orgy
    Like say
    Time no go ever end…

    E be like say
    Dis drama
    We dey act here
    Have got two sided receipts to recover…

    E no matter say
    Na tay-tay we’ve been waiting,
    De koko be say
    Dis drama we dey act here
    Have just begun…

    It’s another long way ahead.

    The make-up like a set-up
    Is creating a timeless worktop
    Where speed, space, love and time
    Will wallop against every sweatshop…

    It is an unspoken hop.
