Sekere – Fola Daniel Adelesi

Great gourd
Clothed with beeds
Never magnanimous
In flaunting its bead-cloth
Skifully knitted
By its designer.
Little did it appear
‘twas a barricade
From what you tossed in
Through your thin neck
To your bank-like body.
You rolled and rolled
While we yelled and danced,
Then you became a man
Still with your qualities
Making men
Admire your beed-clothes
Without any eye
Looking what you tossed in.
