Ajangbila Poem by Kolawole Ajao


Ajangbila!
I turn my back to you
I wouldn't dine with you
When I heard your name
I ran faster than the cheetah

Ajangbila!
You run cantankerous in heads
Devil's handiwork you are
You dance like the devil itself
You are too little to belitttle

Ajangbila!
You would rather annihilate
You would bring down low
What you erected in a lifetime
In a jiffy and a fraction of seconds

Ajangbila!
You always blast like thunder
But more calamitous than it
Funnier than the strange rain
Which rocked Lagos on July 10

Ajangbila!
I call unto my creator
I call unto my head
To put between me and you
A gap unbrigdeable by any artisan.
