VANITY, VAINGLORY, NARCISSISM

VANITY, VAINGLORY, NARCISSISM

– The frailties of mankind

“Eni ri’nkan he,     

To fe ku pelu e,                                  

Owo eni to ti so’nu nko?                   

Aye la ba; aye la o fi s’ile si,             

Duro na, w’ehin re wo…”

– Ebenezer Remilekun Fabiyi.

(ENGLISH TRANSLATION BY DELE AJAJA)

The one who finds a lost item,

Who wants to die over it,

What would the ill-fated owner do?

We met it on earth (fortune;) we shall leave it on earth,     

Wait a moment, ponder it…..
