The Steps Of Time

If you can count the steps of time
say sixty seconds make one minute
sixty minutes make one hour
twenty four hours make one day
and one dove and two cowries
and three kolanuts broken
make the world a place to be
at the era of magic backfire
they’ll say
“why are you so lean, my guy?”
you must lie,
it is malaria fever.

Life is what you make it to be
and time is like statue of Nnemonisha;
it will surely leave forever.
