MEMORIES...AWAKEN BY THE DUST OF BENIN.
Away from Bauchi,
Far away from the clutches of Book-A-Ram vampires.
But long way from home.
I ran as fast as I could yet I fainted slowly...
All eyeballs rolling in the womb of the dusk.
Of the domain of Omo N'Oba the King. (Yawn)
The city-gates flung open and the voice rang through.
'Welcome back to Benin'!
Two full cycles are gone and here I come.
To pay homage...Oba atopeye!
(Long live the king).
