The lion rider

Ogedengbe the Agbeogungboro: Brave hunter that daily tames the forest; Morning , his dogs feed on lion's bladder, At noon, his hens feed on heron's bile duct, At night ,his siblings feed on lion's lap. Ogedengbe the Agbeogungboro: Indomitable commander of grove; He that says there is no fear in jungle, Except thrillers of egrets and partridge; Fun! Had their forebears ever stood his wrath? Ogedengbe the Agbeogungboro: He killed tiger,lion said I trust me, He killed the lion and made coat his skin, His flesh now in his dryer,sun-drying; Drying for palm wine ,drying for comrades. Ogedengbe the Agbeogungboro: I provoke him not,he that provokes him May have oil for soup but not flesh in it; I provoke him not,he that provokes him When we eat the flesh let him pack the bone. Ogedengbe the Agbeogungboro, The lion rider,it is him I greet. (Iambic Pentameter : Sketch a fictitious character.) name :Kayod5 Nov 11,2014
