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.

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