An Ode To My School - Poem by Idris Abayomi Alade

Igando Community High School
I will sing your praise
With the loudest of voice
And sign language that the deaf
and complete being might hear
The good work you've done in our lives.

Years have passed that time separated us
Like shaft and maize
The values you instilled in me
Make me the best choice for bosses at work
The scion amongst consanguinities
For this my tongue be restive in singing your praises.

Now i am what vast majority called
A better person
The man that is the source of joy to the world
I am indebted to you
And this i pay through my ceaseless praises
Long live my noble school.
