Chase To Checkmate

Look around you every each day
There is always a chase to mate.

From street to street, cock is chasing a hen to mate,
From shed to shed, ram is chasing a ewe,
On fences, you'll see agama chasing lizard feminine,
Check the trees around thee,
You'll see the he-birds chasing the she-birds
And he-bees chasing the she-bees and
He-flies chasing the she-flies and
He-butterflies chasing the she-butterflies;
Omolola, my chase and checkmating,
Some fool-folks say it's despate.

Look around you every each day
There is always a chase to mate.
