Sow Humanness and Honesty Today for a Blissful Tomorrow

It is the big rod that torments the gong
Torrential rains reduce the ant-hill to mud
Osun Ewuji, desirous of eating and drinking
Crawled stealthily into the ocean
Cast IFA for Eyin-Iwa (Thereafter)
Who is the senior of Oni (Today)
You people of Isinpe
It is because of Eyin-Iwa
That we should be benevolent to Oni (Today)
For whatever seed we plant today
We shall reap the fruits tomorrow
Sow humanness and honesty today
For a blissful tomorrow

The Dog Snarled for a Long While in the Bush…

The dog snarled for a long while in the bush
But his barking could never reach the home
The cultivator of the farm does not know the sacred ground of ORO
The pregnant mother cannot see the bottom of her pregnant stomach
This is the IFA cast for OKE, the Mountain
When OKE was in the midst of enemies
OKE was in the midst of stones
OKE stood strong
OKE stood very strongly
