Great Ife, an indelible edifice in my heart.

 A complex circuitry of giant geometric slabs;

sand, stone, and concrete.

Larger than life tessellations,

towering-
sprawling in audacious self-sufficiency.

 
 

Behold

fleshed out in the minds of great men,

this physical testament to dogged diligence,

to capabilities, possibilities and fancied expectations.

A labyrinthine self-portrait of a nation`s swaggering ambitions

and its exalted optimism for a most resplendent future.

Hezekiah Oluwasanmi Library.   Great Ife

The mind boggles

at the maze of small wooden doors hiding

archives of weighty testimonials, feverishly guarded

by a multitude of supercilious minds,

airing in and out of pointedly labelled offices.

 
 

Great Ife, awash with esoteric types,

lavish spirits sauntering earnestly,

brimming with more questions than answers,

creating visions of places that must exist outside of here,

places only to be imagined

and imagined they were.
