Oloye Jako (Chief Jako)


Oloye Jako today the town mourns your weakness
You have lived a life without thoughts of consequence
Chief Jako the kingdom is on fire
Yet you snore in the flames

Before your entry the palace was honoured
At your time we live in horror
The people of 'Katoro' that you head
Now read more meaning to all you said

We wish you had shoes on to the palace Oloye Jako
May be you will know how uncomfortable the sand makes the feet feels in shoes Oloye Jako
Under your hat I wish bald
May be you will know what shame is Oloye Jako

The kingdom of 'Katoro' you have made 'Kadaru'
Bad news now seems normal to us at your rule
Good news is what seems extraordinary Oloye Jako

Your Smiling face in the dailies
fills the pages
In your death you find joy Chief Jako
At the right time I hope your fall sounds like a prophesy

Oloye Jako! listen to this
Every stupid man walks alone when the power is gone
You will be the mockery of the town in no time
Like always we will wait patiently
After all, a chief comes when a chief is gone.

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
