Tell Me Of The Obàtálá God Of Creation

Obàtálá the Yoruba god of creation
Obàtálá thy funny myth remains within us artistic
Who was there when Obàtálá like spider
Descended with twine-rope so lightweight
From heaven to architect this mundane
Calabash in both hands_ sands, cements, gravels within
Within, Obàtálá made the onshore and offshore
Within, Obàtálá partitioned homes from forests
Obàtálá built bridges for cars and carts and pedestrians
Swiftly before out of the supplies of sands
Obàtálá the Yoruba deity of past and present sages;
Back then in our tender ages at class four
We found much much fun therein
In the Obàtálá myth of earthly creation
Now gone are the days, now gone are the years
O! How time flies, egg is now a cock.
