Through the road bulldozed 
Behind the Bulls he rode
So busy he dared not doze
His hair red as the island Rhode

Leg as thin as thin
Fate as done as sealed
Brave as the lion of Africa 
Free as the wind of Sahara 

Cattle herd he controls
With a stick he goes undeterred 
Under sun and rain he burdens himself with no sorrow
On the road to tomorrow not so tarred 

Fulani your destiny is the nation you milk
Fulani your fate is the meat of breakfast 
You are the skin, the hide that swoons the tide
Fulani boy, how did you rise so fast? 

Oyo, Nigeria
  • Inspired by a fulani boy I met on my visit to a remote part of Abuja, Nigeria
