for the young ones who have died before their time (Alawonde Lois. I., Dare Sax, Ayantoye Ayantosho and others)
Why do you lay your cold fingers,
on the ones who ought to last longer?
Why do you choose to take away,
the unripe ones who love to stay?
Why leave us in so great a grief,
by not allowing them to live?
Why do you snatch them in their prime?
Why don’t you come at the right time?
Why don’t you even care?
Why leave us in despair?
Why do you touch our loved ones,
though you know they are dear ones?
Why do you play against the rules?
Why? We need an explanation from you!
