Alawoki O. Akeem (17/03/1993 / Lagos, Nigeria)
In the greens before the advnet of the locust
There were interesting actions indeed
Interesting atmosphere were then witnessed
Outstanding culture, tradition and custom
Alongside, the best of its kind ancestral worship
Oh! The fresh mild and encouraging air blow
Assisted the ado-less seasons
Not leaving behind the cross-pollination.
Alas! The locusts are fast arriving
Precariously coming with their lights sharp
Sharp as to cut strong green plants off
And off the wings cut
But, let the greens regain its leaves.
