Okoye died in his goatskin as a farmer of debts
An ill-fated and doomed lad
Under the sneeze of a thousand sunshine
Age was his king and child of title
Umuofia’s sacrifice and greatest judge
Proverbs and elders sat as visitors ashamed of their snuff.
Wrestler for cowries, tears of Ndibe
A mirth of red earth
The stroke of the ogene
He was loud, long, and was ibo.
