Truth in the mouth of a liar
Becomes dumb
But your ears shall not feign
Ignorance when I call

Akufecha has eaten much cock-heads
By the mouth of Ogazi the priest
To sell healthy prayers to their faithfuls

But gods that eat food are men like us
Whose pockets swell ours to skint
Whose laughters mock our smiles

They are the middle men in religion
Haggling our spirits in bazaars
To plead our causes
To whichever god cares to buy
