Yes, They Slap Court Judges In The Land Of Honour-Part 1

By Niyi Osundare

They slap Court Judges
In the “Land of Honour”
Eewo*! Yes, they slap Court Judges
In the “Land of Honour”
The sin-phony from falling blows
Tunes up to a harsh and ominous tenor
Ayodele Fayose led thugs to beat up judges in Ekiti
They beat up the Law
And loot his pocket
Yes, they beat up the Law
And loot his pocket
Then club Court Clerks
And burn their docket
Ah, rogbodiyan**! The Temple of Justice
In such profane disarray
Rogbodiyan! The Temple of Justice
In such profane disarray
Fleeing lawyers have lost their wigs,
The “Land of Honour” its noble way
With absolute confidence and full command
The Rabble-Rouser, Chief Ass in this Assault
Yes o, in absolute confidence and full command
The Rabble-Rouser, Chief Ass in this Assault
Emperor-in-Waiting with a sleazy sway
Whose very presence is a mortal insult
My way, my way, or NO way, NO way!
His usual song, his usual story
Say, My way, my way, or NO way, NO way!
His usual song, his usual story
The mob who contrived his crown
Will surely face the future’s fury
* Abomination!
** Turmoil
Part 2
Slam shut the gate
The Barbarians are here again
Say, slam shut the gate
The Barbarians are here again
Their Stone Age shrieks and dumb insight
Lend a tune to our air of running pain
Behold this Medieval darkness
So soon after our rousing Renaissance
Hah, this Medieval darkness
So soon after our rousing Renaissance
Painful irony now, the “Land-of-Honour” tag
The news never comes today without its newsance
Days of dread, nights of terror
Shivering streets enslaved by fever
Alas, days of dread, nights of terror
Shivering streets enslaved by fever
The Id of Amin is out with its cannibal Ego
Dissident skulls in his capacious freezer
The people went to the market
They forgot their mind at home
Yes, the people went to the market
They left their minds at home
