Civilazation Amongs Yoruba's


why did we forget our culture
Why did we forget our Rules and laws
Why did we forget our customs and tradition
Why a sense of doom hung over the entire Yoruba's
Ha civilization

We have eyes but is not functioning
We have nose but we don't use it to smell the wicked people
We have month but We can't shout for good and truth
We have good land and good resource but, we have perish them
Ha civilization

what about our mode of wearing cloth
Man with agbada ganbu and sokoto
Woman with Iro and buba
omide with different kind of costume to attract the Apon
Ha civilization

Let our eyes be open to see where civilization is leading us to
Let join hand on desk to make some perfect change
Let us go back to our origin
And say no to civilization
Have we forgotten our land and tradition totally?

Ha Civilization! Civilization! ! Civilization! ! !

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
