The Demise of an Icon - Ali Toyin Abdul

The demise of the greatman is sympathetic.
The beautiful sun refused to shine in the east.
The hypothetical train that carried his soul is apathetic.
The running wind blows towards the south-east.

The hypothetical train is timely and punctual.
It refused the greatman to say bye to the wonderful world.
It wait no second to carry his soul.
We pray him to lie in the bosom of the merciful lord.

The greatman during his life was tactful.
The fortitude to bear the loss is painful.
To celebrate and honour the life of a warrior.
People were seen moving towards the mausoleum.
