Where are the stairs
That goes to the house on the cliff?
The constituents of slope till you
Ascend the hills.
How many hills will you name?
Oke Bere, Oko Foko, Oke Itunu,
Oke Mapo, Oke Bola,
Oke Aare, Oke Ado, Oke Mokola,
All making Oke’Badan.
The blessings of the hill,
The Mohammedan-hill parlance,
When houses rise and fall,
Seeing houses high and low,
Location dependent.
Ancient names,
Ancient heritage,
Ancient area,
Now the centre of the town by the forest,
