Iruwa has killed my death (poem)

Iruwa has killed my death (poem)

I will not die
Iruwa has killed my death

buried her in my grave

Isu will not see
my nakedness

Iruwa has taken the burden
he has married my wife

out to concerned relatives

and left my twelve children
at the mouth of my grave

with ragged memories
of things forgotten

no! death will not see
my corpse

I will not die again

I have claimed my death
from the lion?s mouth!
