Just Like That?

Just like that
Kowee’s voice travels wide
signaling another passage
to the world beyond. But to
our surprise, Olúméfon didn’t
kick the supposed bucket. It
seems death had gone back
to its scabbard without tasting
blood. Just like that?

Just like that
A cry arose like Australia’s bonfire
from our backyard alerting us of
the death of Làkásègbè who plotted
against the Olúméfon of Mefon kingdom.
Happiness collides with joy
but in Làkásègbè territory, they
were plunged into pure agony.
Just like that?

Just like that
The 2-in-C in Làkásègbè kingdom
declared a bounty for the royal
head of Olúméfon kingdom. $80
million for a billionaire head? It’s
unheard of that the head that wears
the crown is easy to come by. Let the
whole Làkásègbè come for the head
and Gbòròmídelérù should shush.
Just like that?

Just like that
We’ll watch as the action unfolds.
Till then, Ìbákà goes home.
