For You who keep our Memories Awake


Onigegewura

I wish I had a praise singer's tongue
I would have rocked and blown your name till your head is incensed by my praise 

I wish I had a praise chanter's voice- 


I would have thrown you up with the melody of my lines till your heartbeats  create an album of sonorous verse

I wish I had an artist's brush
I wish I had a rapper's rhymes 

Onigegewura
you turn history's mystery into a movie
Onigegewura 
you report case laws as though you were an artiste 
Onigegewura
tell me, how do you conjure the ghost of memory?
Onigegewura
tell me, how do you abracadabra these legends and epic 

Onigegewura is library, trending
Onigegewura is Facebook, teaching

One session in your auditorium 
Stare decisis lose all their conundrum.

Onigegewura's Note: Segun, Onigegewura is very grateful for this. I expect nothing less from a fellow Great Akokite! Onigegewura is extremely grateful for this poetic effort.
