King Jaja Of Opobo - Poem by Ebi Robert

See him wail like a labored woman
Chained, made less a human
Entrapped in the arms of tens
A Lion with the strength of tens

Dragged to a world of moil, Jaja wept
Colonized by his own flesh, Jaja wept

But in the mist of years, he grew
In decades of years, he so grew

Jaja clamped with bold bonds
Slaved to soil in the mud of ponds
Depreciated on slavery's demise
As on wise is on theirs wise
He stood the one to remove the lice
As on wise is on theirs wise

From slavery to mastery
He stood the one to remove the lice
From slavery to mastery
As on wise is on theirs wise

He became the head of wisdom
After serving loyalty to gain freedom

He became the head of Opobo
After he left the land, Igbo

He became the King of Africa
After he fought the slavery of Africa

O' Jaja!
O' Jaja the Ja….

African Hero… Who died in Exile
Saying NO to ‘O and ppresion'
African Hero… Commander of the Hill
Saying NO to ‘O and ppresion'

Africa shall ever be grateful
For being a faithful fool
Jaja of Opobo
The great slave from Igbo…

THE END
