Eye Orofo (Parrot) - Poem by Gbolagade Taiwo

A bird that is always a victim of the cage
Eye orofo, a bird that is isolated in the world of birds
Her way of life is totally against the world's
Her heart is not a good place for secret
Parrot, a bird that never fear the wrath of truth
Always revealing the truth of every minutes
You are the one who is kept away from seeing the wrongs of men
Because you might report to God all what you saw
Inspite of the purnishment of saying the truth
You still find it pleasurable to vomit the truth
It was you who saw Maja eating from the pot of his mum
You told mum about Maja's action
Maja came and gave you a knock on your head
Only God knows the number of the knocks you've gotten on your head
Yet you continue to speak the truth
Eye orofo, the perfect example of the truth
Your truth saying brought hatred to you in the world of birds
But that does not stop you from saying the truth
Because you know truth gives life and freedom.
