Buhari was young, we are old

15 June 2016, 13:59 Adigun Temitope


The distance of the old and young separate this body, Buhari

Buhari was young like we were with his microscopic eyes and alerting hands and flying legs with his forwarding changed mouth and mind full of tomorrow

Buhari was young like we were

Buhari dreamt of change and he believed the tales for mankind, for the young, our brothers

Buhari chose the bridegroom of steel and the hardness of his visions summoned the Oracles

Buhari breathed in life, struggle and hope Buhari was young like we were Buhari justice gone forth to fear gods who returning is not possible and will die again midst of slumbers

Buhari was born and live like our forefathers did

Buhari sang songs with the poor, their songs of longing

Buhari suffered with the rich but was happy with the multitudes

Buhari was young like we were

Buhari was like a tree filled with branches

Buhari was like the river praising the ocean in adoration

Buhari was young, longed to live

Buhari was an eagle born to fly

Buhari loathed the old prisons and build new ones

Buhari was young like we were And because of these we have lost

Buhari yes, we have lost


His young was stolen from us the day we weep in the night to have him

His young was stolen from us the day we all asked him to stay

His young was stolen from us the day we divert our love towards him

He was stolen from us the day, the answers to freedom was only with him

His young was stolen from us the day he gathered Us beside him

Yet, Buhari is still here with us He is a multitude but with a dead young

Old and strong like colossus

He is here to take us all from the locked cage

He has been taken from us all but Buhari is Us all
