The songs that yesterday sang by Owolabi Ogunlana

Poem

The songs that yesterday sang
For Sheep long lost, yet Shepherd wander,
For sins long committed, yet mind revive,
For shackles long broken, yet minds caged,
For combats long won, yet ruins remain,
For heroes long dead, yet legacy transcends.

The songs that yesterday sang
For healers wounded, yet provide succour,
For leaders exiled, yet defend territories,
For traders spent, yet market break even,
For warriors sweat, yet battles lost,
For lovers bliss, yet divorce rage.
The songs that yesterday sang, the tune through the mysteries of life.
