"Ireke"  -- Sugarcane

“Ireke” — Sugarcane

IFA says:
Pankere wonjon wonjon awo inu igbo
difa fun Oosanla Oseeremagbo
ti yo faladun fun Ireke
ebo ni won ni ko se
o gb’ebo o rubo
bi a ba ni re gbogbo lowo
sebi aladun ara eni ni o
Oosanla Oseeremagbo lo faladun fun Ireke
Ifa je n radun ara mi je o

Translation:
The slender cane plant, the Awo of the forest
That is the Awo who cast Ifa for Oosanla Oseeremagbo (Obatala)
Who shall give sweetener to ireke, the sugarcane
He was advised to offer ebo (sacrificial rites)
He complied
If we have all good things in life in our possession
Definitely it is our life’s sweetener
Oosanla Oseeremagbo is he who had given sweetener to Ireke
Ifa, please let me enjoy the sweetness of my own life
