Aduke – Tribute to Dagrin

1

Here is a poem Aduke wrote for dagrin, Enjoy… Continue to rest in Perfect Peace Barrack O’Grin.

Eyes closed and body cold
lips dry, won’t even twitch to funny jokes
its a journey to eternity,
a voyage without return
the news spread like fire
he was not just an ordinary “bagger”
cell phones ringing off the hook
an entire nation thrown into gloom

iku iba gbowo
a a ba fun
iku i ba gba eran
a a ba ra agbo fun

in the corner of my bed too shocked to shed tears
i think of the essence of having your life to mend
the news ruse all together different stories fed
ignorantly or not, reality! our minds cleared
a few more years, it won’t hurt this much
what will linger are the things you’ve done
indeed, your deeds are on the soils of the world
and will germinate into iroko now that you’re gone

iku iba gbowo
a a ba fun
iku i ba gba eran
a a ba ra agbo fun

your demise shatters the heart to bereavement
expectant, were the yearnings of your devotees
different stories, which one should be believe?
some say alcohol put the car on full speed
but who should blame you for how lived
(nobody holy pass jo)
everyone sometimes loose it a bit
its a pity yours didn’t end so sweet

iku iba gbowo
a a ba fun
iku i ba gba eran
a a ba ra agbo fun

aremu omo oro
ma gbese lo kan kan
irin ajo taye pari
to run bere
maje ekolo,ma de je okun
ohun won ba n je lajule orun
ni ko ba won je

sun re. ire gbogbo… ADUKE
