MN (17 May,1937 / Obetiti Nguru Nigeria)

In Sumptuous Splendour

Those the gods love
they die young
and live to be a hundred

Their errors have been purged
in their youth
and love blossoms
in sumptuous spendour

So, here I am
struggling to die
my sins streaking
to smithing fire
that the gold of the gods
may in my mettle be forged
for the tiara of your soul
