Poem :An Oba

Here is one poem that helps teach culture and also grammatical structure.

An Oba

I’d like to be an Oba

And wear a crown of beads,

And whisk a long, soft cow tail

And do grand and noble deeds.

I’d like to be an Oba

And sit upon a throne,

I’d like to take as many wives

AS I wanted, for my own,

I’d like to be an Oba

And have chiefs, old and grey

Prostrate and kneel before me.

(Well if only for a day)

I’d like to be an Oba,

But I can’t really see

That it would ever happen.

But who knows, it might- maybe.
