nocturnal visitor

Darkness came visiting last night

Singing a serenade so lovely

That my heart wept

He invited me on a date

To all the places I’ve always dreamt of going

He said we would cruise the land of Àrán*

And feast with the Ìlfà*

Together we would dance to the beats of Gángan*

And swish our hips behind the Elégún* entourage

 

But once again, I refused his proposal

I was well acquainted with darkness

He was all promises

And no delivery.

 

– Adeyemi-Taiye Rukayat (I.R Adams)

 

* Àrán – A Yoruba town in Kwara State, Nigeria

*Ìlfà – People of Ilofa town, which is also a place in Kwara state, Nigeria

*Gángan – Talking drum

*Elégún – Masqueraders
