*An Ode to a Freedom Fighter

Dear Doctor Joe,

Heaven must have kissed Earth
On the great day of your birth,

As your brave cries echoed off
walls in the delivery room,

We can’t help but wonder;
did they have any clue?

That freedom for many just burst

Out of a divine womb?

You grew to fight for the voiceless
With no conditions and terms,

Though severally imprisoned, a true comrade at arms

…and still, you keep blazing the torch
Firing up Human Rights

till you have spread across the world

These flames of
Passion, love and light!

Happy Birthday, Doctor Joe Odumakin!!

We really, really love you!!!
