TO SWAT OR NOT TO SWAT
The Odu Ọ̀YẸ̀KÚ Ọ̀KÀNRÀN appears for #ENDSWAT.
Who cast Ifa divination for Amomo,
Who at dawn proceeded to the farm;
They warned him
To be spiritually mindful
And offer sacrifices
To prevent unforeseen circumstances
That could lead to his sudden death
A vessel was traveling to Ilẹ̀ Àrìwá
Orunmila was in this vehicle
Together with his people and a host of others
This vehicle was filled to the brim
With a large number of people
All headed to the same destination.
After voyaging for several days
They reached a strange town
Where the pilot of the vessel stopped
And the voyagers came out of the vessel
To stretch their legs
And to buy supplies that they needed for the journey.
Orunmila also came down from the vessel.
And he stretched his leg
And purchased supplies
That he needed for the voyage.
After some time
Everybody returned to the vessel
But Orunmila had not yet returned to the vessel.
The pilot of the vehicle asked about Orunmila
And they told him Orunmila was not yet on the vessel
and that the pilot should wait
For Orunmila to embark
Before proceeding on their voyage.
But the pilot was impatient
He was also angry
He said he was not going to wait for Orunmila
Because the night was falling
And he was in a hurry
But did not listen to the passengers.
The pilot immediately resumed the journey
Leaving Orunmila stranded behind
Orunmila was not annoyed
But continued to watch the vessel
As it continued the journey without him
Surprised that he was left stranded.
The vessel with all the passengers
Was hardly out of Orunmila’s sight
When a strong gust began to blow
Which toppled the vessel over.
A lot of people were wounded
Even more lives were lost.
Orunmila celebrated his Ori
For redeeming him from the misfortune
And for saving him from an untimely death
Caused by a lack of patience.
That is the situation the Nigerian authority finds itself with #ENDSWAT: to swat or not to swat.
The ongoing youth revolution is a tiny mosquito.
It has landed on the scrotum.
The pilot of the vessel will swat it with anger
And serious catastrophes will transpire.
