The Enemies of Awo Have Become Well-Boiled Yam

Just as they were wishing him to die young in the forest
He was busy erecting mansions
Just as they were wishing that his corpse would rot away without even receiving decent burial rites
He was accumulating expensive cloth like a royal person
Just as they were wishing him to be sad and lonely without any aide or companions
He was mounting female horses after dismounting male horses (he had many fancy vehicles)
These are the declarations of Ifa to Orunmila
When he was in the midst of enemies
And he was living in anticipation of the evil machinations of his adversaries
He was advised to offer Ebo
He heard and he complied
The enemies of Awo have become well-boiled yam
With relish
Ifa will consume them all
With relish
The enemies of Awo have become well-cooked yanrin vegetable
With satisfaction
Ifa will consume them all
With satisfaction
