You have acquired great mileage,
Not just in age,
Not just in association,
Not just in career,
Not just in oratory.
Millions desire your mileage,
There are people whose wear their sleeves bear their mileage,
You are way ahead,
Just silently acquiring the towering sophistication,
Which creates distinct mileage.
Akeem Lasisi, alara gbayi da,
Your nautical mileage is beyond Africa,
Your craft is beyond fluke,
You are the Maestro,
That uses proverbs to find words.
Happy birthday, Egbon Atata.
