Listen attentively, Orunmila, the Baba Agbonniregun
Remember "tribulation accounts for fetching blue dye water"
My beloved, "suffering accounts for grinding soaked corn"
And after grinding the soaked corn without end... WELL!
For one to go to the forest and fetch leaves... WELL!
And to break into a howl, like a wood cutter... WELL!
And kola nuts are what responsible people sell... WELL!
Remember that these were the messages of Ifa for me, Osunfunleyo, your wife... WELL!!!
When I was to follow you on Ifa business to a far, far away place
As far as the distance between the sun and the earth... WELL!
They advised us to sacrifice... WELL!!!
Remember that we did comply... WELL!
And now, they have marked the hut, filled with money and chalk... WELL!
Remember, my love, they marked that of expensive beads with camwood... WELL!
And that of the latest fashions with charcoal... WELL!
My comrade in Ifa devotion
I have just told you the contents therein... WELL!
- Holy Odu ObaraMeji
