Can I Pronounce Your Name?

Can I Pronounce Your Name?

Can I pronounce your name?
You’re my Nile that flows from
The horn of the black nation to
The dungeon of gold in J’burg.

You’re the rising sun that heats
Up the scalps of straying vultures
You’re the moon that lights up
The dark path of the blind with wit.

A pearl that’s costlier than Solomon’s
Kingdom are you as no price could
Be wagered for your worth. Your
Riches will oust Mansa Musa’s worth.

To all nation shall the ocean spread
Your fame. All ears’ll marvel at the tale.

Bard Tosin Morakinyo
