Death of a Warrior

Also Read

Oh Adufe,
The only one with a fire sparkling eyes,
A thunder stricken voice,
An angry, smiling face,
The woman whose legs' beads shook the earth
There's no doubt, you had taken after your father,
Akande, the great hunter of his time
Adufe, daughter of okunade,
No man dared look you in the eyes,
You who kept the lightning in your gorge
And the thunder in your quiver,
I heard that you the great elephant
Had fallen last night,
The day had conspired against The night
For allowing the death of
The war queen,
The foundation of our race
The one who sing for joy
When war is being declared,
Woe unto human race
For a great warrior is gone.
