Aringbere

It’s that song

The one abelejayan couldn’t put a verse to

Bata, bata,  bata bata

It’s the song,

Bata, bata, bata bata

The drums scream

Aringbere jumps to the sides

Tapes of the generously sown dansiki held with both hands

He swirls in a circle

Twirls, swirls, spins  

He Flashes bitter cola partitioned teeth

And the words- Bata bata bata bata

It’s the song that shares joy

The drummers beat with laughter,

The dancers beam of joy,

With calabashes filled to the brim with palm wine

The crowd raise hands in victory

Then head to the dance floor

About Me

My life’s journey is that of many parts, every day I try to bring all the parts to an agreement, but I am yet to succeed at that, or maybe I shouldn’t even be trying to do it, I really don’t know yet- but while at it, I try to find how each part makes me better, and how each part can make the society better
