Cast divination for Orunmila
On the day all Irunmole convened a meeting at his house
They gossiped behind his back saying: where will this wretched being find food to feed us?
The Irunmole usually meet on a rotational schedule
Whoever hosts the meeting must provide for the feast
It was Orunmila's turn
He began hearing rumors about his inability to provide food
Orunmila heard this but kept quiet
On the day of the meeting, the king of the town fell ill
He sent for Orunmila to perform divination
Orunmila went and requested 200 yams, 200 bowls of soup, and 200 bottles of wine for the offering
Before he finished his request, the items were made available to him
Orunmila quickly took 100 pieces of each item and sent them home to his wife
To feed the Irunmole before he arrived
The Irunmole were surprised when they saw the abundance of food
After they finished eating and drinking lavishly
All of them were intoxicated
When Orunmila reached home with the rest of the food
He continued to force feed them until they could not eat anymore
So Orunmila began kicking them in their bellies and making jest of them
He was singing as they were all vomiting:
Ogun is vomiting, ahhhhhhh!
Ogun is vomiting, ahhhhhhhh!
Ogun is vomiting money, ahhhhh!
Ogun is vomiting beads, ahhhhhh!
Ogun is vomiting ileke beads, ahhhhh!
Ogun is vomiting, ahhhhh!
This is how Orunmila began kicking Ogun in his stomach
Until Ogun finished vomiting all of the pounded yam
Also money and beads on top of the yams which Orunmila collected
He also did this to Obalufon and the remaining Irunmole
Kicking them in their bellies until they vomited money and beads
Their vomit transformed into money, beads, brass, bronze, lead, silver and gold
Orunmila became exceedingly rich
