Let the cabals know — Alisonomi

The toothless lions parading the jungle 
Scavenging all the available loopholes
For the remains of animals to strangle
Forcing woodchucks back to their holes 

They’re bloodsuckers on a deadly mission    
Roding our fatherland with no other vision 
Than to trample upon all they see moving 
As if they roars for others to be grooving 

From their caves located in the Abjo Rock 
And in the different secretariat of their den 
They erect walls bigger than the Mazu Rock 
And openly instruct like the masses, they ken 

But if we can really join our heroes pasts
The great men and women like Fela Kuti 
As youths with vision and a sacred duty 
The cabals will know we’re not outcasts

Au Nord, chez le peuple rieur — Alisonomi

Bienvenue dans votre nouveau travail  
Mais ne vous mettez pas trop à l’aise 
Ne prenez pas trop de temps inutile 
Car, ici, il y a un secret connu de tous 
Chaque chaise est solidement éjectable

Vous êtes parmi les fils des nomades 
Ceux qui suivaient le cours du temps
Ici, on monte confortablement sa tente 
Avec vitesse en prenant tout son temps 
Car, on sait qu’on peut toujours partir 

Au Nord, il fait bon vivre ensemble 
Dans ce territoire sacré du peuple du Nord 
Où vivent les fils et les filles du peuple rieur
Qui sillonnaient, en été, le long du Saint-Laurent
Avant de monter, en hiver, vers le nutshimit

Ici, on rencontre le nord dans toute sa nordicité 
Au pays des enfants des gardiens de la forêt boréale 
Qui ont appris à parcourir la terre ancestrale 
Et qui avant l’arrivée des plastiques et des mines 
Protégeaient mieux la terre de toutes les ordures

Girls of the East of Naija (I) - Alisonomi

I know a people from the East
Of the rising sun of River Niger 
Where women were once sacred 
Givers of life and sacred custodians  
Called mothers for myriads of reasons 

Mothers from their very tender age 
Little sisters but already perfect mothers 
Being moulded to fit a perfect stereotype 
Meticulously groomed to be the best of cooks
Scrub, wash, weed, sit with their legs crossed 

Once they learn to stand on two feet
Their first choice is to be good mums 
Multitasked ladies even before being girls 
Balancing loads on their heads with ease
For the future will not be always kind to them  

Happy as the children know how to always feel 
They also learn that to be a lady is to know shame 
For though perfect she might be, she's only but a girl 
Who should not look people straight at the eyes
As that’s not ladylike, thus unworthy of her sex
