SONG OF THE UNLEARNED

Standard

Oh!Was it not yesterday?
That Arike grew into a woman
How time flies for us
Arike leaves for elsewhere

The first suitor comes bearing goods
Arike’s love and all he claims to want
Seeking for her from herself
And not her family

Eledumare, can you imagine?
The stupidity of mankind is so great
Arike desires to go with him
Her lessons not fully learnt
Disaster lurks

Arike, my daughter
Without doubt, you are beautiful
Yet Oba Oke knows too
That beauty without brains is naught

Asake is married, you remind me
Yet I ask of you
Is Asake happy in her home
She cannot show you her scars
For shame withholds her

Your lessons are important to learn
Abeke learnt hers and is prosperous
Ajoke did same and even taught herself more
Why should you rush into your forever?
When all you have left is forever?
