In the whole wide world

Or World Wide Web if you like

Kererenke is a song sung for Obi

“Obi is a boy” of course we know

But that does not mean

He would never grow


So, “Obi kererenke Obi…”

Is an exhortation for feats

Soldierlike expolits of a man

Who has bushes of beards

Sprouting  fearlessly on

His manly chest!


This song is not for fickle

Chicken-hearted fellows

Who speak like women

And fight like children

Nor for economic gluttons

Or political chameleons


‘Obi Kererenke’ celebrates Obi

Of course we know what I mean

Chanting his enchanting gestures

Gesticulating at more and better

That he drinks water after all

To cleanse his immolated voice

    But, abeg, wetin be “expolits”?

  2. @ostar… This is simple though ostarish. Someday, we will sing the kererenke for you too.
    Expolits should be exploits.
