‘Kiriji’

In the silence of sounds
they came to parapo
Kiriji

Of legends born
and foes united,
a fight for independence.

Kiriji
the great acclaim of warriors.
Shooting their shot for freedom,
brothers of a rebellious cause
bound by the bonds of oppression.

Muddied and bloodied,
at the fields of igbajo;
unwilling though
they came to parley
for the dream to become
… At Kiriji.
