ANỤNỤEBE

Come, are you the evil tree
That allows no one else to perch 
When you perch, you block where others may perch 
Always carrying face (not sure) 
Looking for who to quarrel with 
Abi they will say you and peace are quarelling 
Always listening to gossip 
When good comes to others you carry face 
When good come to you do your face like fish in the pot 
Abi they will say you and good things re quarreling 
….
Let me ask you are you the evil tree
Let us know which one to avoid 
no birds perch on your branches 
the worst part is, it seems you and the native doctor are now quarrelling as well 
That’s why I said let me ask, are you the evil tree
