“Dodomu” by Alokan Oyedele


Sheep of a leaderless flock Cradled in fate’s dicey grip The babies of breastless mothers Sons of busy fathers Workers without pay Citizens without gain Slaves of circumstance Passengers of destiny Slanderous backtalkers Sycophants in presence Buyers of face value Ignorant of substance Fighters of borrowed causes Violent aggressors Sacrificial pieces You are all…. No We are all


*Dodomu is a Yoruba word used for a silly or stupid person*
