He has been called many names and Pastor
And because he speaks mighty well, an Orator
Listening to him, you can’t be satisfied with status quo
That results in time-wasting and unnecessary fiasco
It would seem his waking moments beckon with much action
Trying to capture it, he Calls for a Performing Generation
One known to have fought many battles to be here
Constantly says Something is About To Happen, don’t fear!
Yesterday, the accolades poured and I wondered
Should such a one be celebrated but once I pondered.
Today, I acknowledge him as one who bares himself
As he works the call upon his life, taking others from the shelf
I dwell in awe of one who truly loves his Asaba-Ijebu Princess
And misses no opportunity to let us know this essence.
As we appreciate you again soon,
May you hold the words we say (though not often), as true.
For indeed… you have not just been a Mentor, Life-Coach, Father
But also a Prophet, Priest, Leader, Transformer and we seek no other!
