THUNDERBOLT

The world is a burning pyre
Trees once seen as shrines
consumed by the raging fire
It is the mighty Iroko, raised
his head a shade too high
incurred the wrath of thunder
A high priest falls in the fire
The flames reach high, licks
his beards, singes his blood
stained wrapper
Behold the demons of Hades
unleashed on man by the deeds
of his fetish hands.
