IKÚ (Another “Reverence” to the Soul Reaper!)

IMG-20160617-WA0006

Iku!
Ikú d’óró; Ikú ş’èkà
Ó wò sùn sùn; ó mę ni’re lo
Àjànàkú sún bí Òkò
Alákíkanjú d’alàí mo şe.

Ikú!
No one prays for your visitation
You walk with sorrow
Do you have anything in common?
You do scare to predict tomorrow.

Ikú!
You are so disrespectful
Creature chameleons to Sand
Victim might not be useful
Breath is difficult to find.

Ikú!
Ikú d’óró; Ikú ş’èkà
Òré mi o jé fura
Ilè ńjęnìyàn
Má tęę bàşù bàşù.

Ikú!
Unpredictable fortune
Could shut sight of creature
Never planned to happen
What an August visitor!

Ikú!
Ó mú ęni bí işan orùn lo
Ó kán eyín òkáń
A so èyàn d’aláìlárá
A so omo d’aláìní baba.

Ikú!
Bó ti wà l’átètèkóşe; Ó ń bę nísinsìnyín
Bęęni yío sì ma rí
Nígbà gbogbo
Ayé àìnípękun.

Ikú!
I can’t write all about you
You possess than I can explain
You shameless Ikú!
Get out like you’ve never done.
