Agidigbo

Hectic traffic, Police patrolled, threat level raised 

Fear of unknown looming as time fly-by, In Zazzau.

 

It tensed up, cloudy.

A fanfare to be, poisoned Atmosphere on Inauguration eve.

What a hard knock at my door, Monster!

Nope.  A pretty Lady, Northerner.

 

A frown-smile befriend my bravery,

And I asked.  Are you scared?

Yeah! I’m running away.

 

I felt grief is a luxury.

Some days ago, Agidigbo dance,

Scapegoat songs, 

Emanating from my neighbour overwhelmed the Environs.

 

Now she ran away!

….Sound of Agidigbo,

….Scapegoat songs,

….And the Atilogwu dancers, all ran away.

 

Now more and more people followed her

…As any sound of Agidigbo

…Plus Scapegoat songs

Is like a warring songs coupled with explosives

 

As the whole city turning to a cemetery

Nobody wants to be a Scapegoat

For it take a clever mind to dance Agidigbo.

At this time of the year
Love is like an angry sea,
With waves coming from all the angles,
Making all relationship struggle,
Tearing relationships,
The same way waves tear ships.

The ocean is endlessness with a bottom that only God's feet can get to
The intensity of the waves can always tell us her mood

The waves of the ocean is an ancient dance
The people of the water understand its power

The waves of the ocean have seen the spirit of The Almighty
Only the voice of God can silence her tantrum

  A sailing tempest ship glides
     Through the tensed waves of the ocean
  And doubts my destination home.

The stormy sea, the fear and the lost
Of dear ones amidst troubles
We shall sail to the coast.
