Bura

the horse makes the foal
his burning hooves are darker than coal
that’s how the people spoke his name
whenever a lady brings to the gods his claim
‘a hankali dan gingiri ya fara pito a cikin ruwa
‘time after time, a newborn swims in water’
it’s true when he sees any hole, his dada can scatter
no wonder when God made him, he molded his third leg
from Iroko branches, wait how do ladies still beg?
