No Vernacular Speaking!

È jẹ kín rí etí gbó ọrọ jàre…

Abeg make i hear word…

You are speaking vernacular!

All the while, there was a plan… to change our narratives and disrupt through distorted scams depicting theirs as the divine hand

Ìdí ère láti má mó òtítọ́…

You are speaking vernacular!

How we’ve slept, how our ancestors must weep as they witness how easily discrimination has crept and reconstituted our youngest mind sets

Ayi tete mú olè, olè n mú ọ loko…

You are speaking vernacular!

Wading through our understandings to redress and impress a civility that is infinitely less in its absolution of ingress while we are left in distress

Ma lanu bí àpẹrẹ, mi ò lè pé nù mì dé…

You are speaking vernacular!

Why wait till the diluted hate languishes in the semetic endemic expression of the selves that we really don’t appreciate

Na condition dey make crayfish bend…

You are speaking vernacular!

Here, where we stood and traded in uncommon good, we were bold and felt the oud of cultural id till we awakened the depth of our bough

Àlá tí ọmọdé bá ti ojú ọrùn ké, á yà obì é ní wéré…

You are speaking vernacular!

Regurgitation of fractured narratives expressed with banal disadvantages leaving our ages in diluted heritages as our echos sound from and for an age

You dey speak vernacular…

You are speaking vernacular!

Our excellence and excellencies re-appropriated for and by a facade that fades with each passing day, yet we hold on to the myopic instead of claiming the gigantic.

Ti a bà torí ìṣù jẹ epò á torí epò jẹ ìṣù…

You are speaking vernacular!

Speak not of your young tongue, as we hold on to ours… we where we were… and are destined to be without barriers created by thee who wish to not see our defined ability

Inú ìkókó dúdú ní èkó fún fún tí ń jáde…

You are speaking vernacular!…

Èdè wá gbọ́dọ̀ yẹ ara wá

Let us understand our vernacular.
