Mogya We

Mogya We

MOGYA WE !MOGYA WE! 
MOGYA WE!!
WHERE AT THOU?
WHERE LIES THEE, MOGYA 
WE?
HAVE THE CORROSIVE 
BREATHE OF NAI
  YOUR AGE-OLD FATHER AND 
NEIGHBOUR ERODED YOUR 
RELICS?
WHERE LIES YOUR FIERY SELF, 
MOGYA WE?
BLOOD IS THICKER THAN 
WATER, MOGYA WE.

I LONG TO SEE YOUR FACE 
AGAIN
 OH FEARLESS ARBITER.
I FEAR YOUR WRATH, 
YOUR JUSTICE I LONG
 WHERE HAVE YOUR 
ORDERLIES GONE
FOR MEN OF STEEL HAVE 
ASSEMBLED.
 GRACEFUL WOMEN WAIT, 
EYES HEAVILY PREGNANT.

 THE BIRTH RIGHT IS UNDER 
SIEGE, ABLEKUMA OUR BANE. 
OOOH MOGYA WE!
WHEN SHALL WE SEE?
 WHEN SHALL WE GATHER 
AGAIN
YOUR THRONE’S KNEE?
 TO MAKE EAR TO YOUR 
RIGHTEOUS REBUKE
AND BEHOLD BLAFO’S GAVEL 
FALL TO MOTHERLY WAIL. 
THEN JUSTICE, AGAIN 
HOISTED.

MOGYA WE! MOGYA WE!! 
MOGYA WE!!!

    Something in that area. Mogya We(Blood Home -literally) is the judgment seat of old. Where the king seats in judgement over mostly criminal cases. Usually the guilty one is punished by death at the executioner's sword. Thus the name Mogya(blood) we( home/square/arena)
