Royalty or colours?


Ifa Olokun asoro dayo

Two hundred and fifty-six Odu’fa
Orunmila omo Alayeru
oni funfun, pupa ati dudu

the man in white should do no one evil
his acts should be pure, for Obatala
only eat bloodless animals – like snails.

the man in red lacks patience; should be feared
Ogun wants blood as a sacrifice to drink
he has water at home but bathes with blood

the man in black should be ignored at night
he’s down-to-earth with an ace up his sleeve
he carries a box full of mysteries

the variations of white, red and black
speaks to an omo kaaro ojiri
the people of Imure can confirm
