A Plea To Ogun I - Poem by Jimoh Ibrahim

In the creation
Lonely in confusion
Seeked for a companion
Was made to scour for ogun
Cutting across phases of life
Among crags and Hills
From sea to ocean
I came in contact with ogun
Affirming that there is no end
To God creative mysteries
Beauty comes in different forms
God has given ogun his final touch
I have seen numbers of birds
The peakcork is picked out
Glazed with different colours
I have come across snakes
But the bead-like snakes is unique
It has a robe of velvet
Until you watch the gelede masquerade
You haven't seen any performances
Ogun who posses two cutlasses
Each made from the rust of iron
The gods of many attrocities
I paved a way and persuaded ogun
Ogun gave companionship in return
Sacrifices are made to plea ogun
Ogun requested for the blood of a sheep
It was offered
Ogun requested for the blood of an hyena
It was splited to appeas ogun
Ogun requested for the blood of an ant
Which I gave without hesitation
Now, Ogun is requesting for more
Whose blood would it be?
