If I Die - Poem by Adedeji Ologbenla

If i die
I will be happy to leave this world
So take me away from here Lord
Let them paste my obituary on the board
It should be fun leaving this world
If i die
I will be happy to leave this world

If i die now
I return to the dust
'Cos i come from the dust
Let them not bury me because of the cost
Or else they will be disturbed by my ghost
Let me be laid on the road to burst
If i die
I return to the dust

If i die now
I should be buried like a cow
'Cos i haven't used my bow
To cut those i am to mow
Those that causes among men row
If i die now
I should be buried like a cow

Let me live
To die for my people
Then can i recieve the heavenly apple
And be given a befitting funeral
Then shall i be laid to my grave like a general
Gone peacefully and happily
'Cos i've done my own quota
I live to die for my people
