Should You Get There Before Me - Poem by Olamide Adebayo

Tell grandmother, of the ground I stand on earth.
Should you get there before me,
Set aside a sit, for when I return to thee.
Should you get there before me,
Tell the tale of life, to those who care to listen.
Should you get there before me,
Tell Eve, of the precarious situation of man on earth.
Should you get there before me,
Let it to the ears of Solomon, of his wisdom, which now we lack.
Should you get there before me,
Relay my thoughts, before HE with the Holy name.
Should you get there before me,
Let Pharaoh know of my despise for such act, against the people of Israel.
Should you get there before me,
Lead a protest, against the loss of our loved ones.


Should you get there before me,
Plead my name, be listed in the Holy Book.
Should you get there before me,
Question the gluttonous act of Jacob.
Should you get there before me,
Eulogize ELEDUMARE for such creativity.
Should you get there before me,
Do not forget to ask the seven questions:
Why is death king over man? ,
Why do power reside in the Ferret? ,
Why is 'sin' a scar on the surface of earth? ,
Why not can angels wine and dine with man? ,
Why not polish the destiny of the oppressed? ,
Why is 'rest' bethroted only to the grave? ,
Why is 'unity' enslaved by 'wealth'? .

If by chance you get there before me,
Pray the hands of time be turned aback.
