INSPIRED BY AMAKA’ S SURULERE

Surulere
That rough path many
Feet have treaded black
In search of golden fleece
Surulere
That open womb
That bears the fruit
Of many sweat
Surulere
All roads that are roads
Must pass through
Her contours
Surulere
Only brave men
Attempt to tread
Only fools
Neglect the quest
Surulere
Black gold
Lies beneath
Your black womb
Patience is virtue
So is you
Surulere
That road that
Has borne great men
And wasted feeble ones
Surulere
All quests
All wishes
All hopes
All aspirations
Must begin and
End at Surelere…
