For Chinua Achebe

Our foremost general
Is homeward bound
Carried shoulders high
By men of valour
Like Nwa Bekee on a hammock
Decorated a champion of champions
After fighting battles of life
Where a multitude lose
And just a few win

Chinualumogu
What a name befitting
The courageous trailblazer
Going to be our forerunner
In heaven
Scripting our names in gold
With a good story to boot
But with nothing falling apart
Fare thee well.
