To the island with

Something powerful, that island

Has been seeking for


2. It has been long

That the people of

Island has been seeking

For a likened possession


3. People have been sent

On the bills of

The island to learn

This thing but couldn’t

Trip outside the island

For a different purpose

Stumbled across the thing

Met with favor was

Granted access to the

Rudiments of acquiring it

With the people for

A while, then asked when

He’ld prepare for home

Not long after get

Hold of all his

Belongings for return trip

Relatives were happy seeing

His people know that

He diverted to ‘nother

Skill when he traveled

Acquired there, they were

Happy ‘cos island has

Spent and be spent


11. Many a one has

Been sent to learn

About something he possessed

But didn’t get close


12. Took the matter to

Island leaderships that their

Own now possesses what

Island has been longing for


13. Quickly, island leaderships sent

For him, made inquiries

If what his people

Said ‘bout him was true


14. After a while, resolutions

Were made by leaderships

To add him into

The decision-making body


15. Few asked of requirements

Expected of him to

Fulfill before becoming a

Member of the house


16. They agreed that he

Was needed in the

Team to terrify other

Islands bringing in security

Source

17. The needful requirements to

Fulfill were waived for

Him ‘cause island had

Lacked this for long


18. Island has been without

Security for this, suffered

Terribly for long from

Other islands for this


19. An accolade due to

Him, everyone says within

And without, debt profile

Will reduce for this


20. He started well with

The people, putting them

At the apex of

His heart for a-while


21. As time flies by

He didn’t consider the

People of island important

Again, was inward looking


22. The neglect of citizens

Brought he into house

Of leaderships, started ignoring

Them, not attending meetings


23. Call to order repeatedly

But didn’t yield for

He has what no one

Has within the island


24. Everyone becomes sick of

Him and was praying

Hoping, looking for way

Out of the mess

Source

25. He has become dry

Bone that stuck to

The island’s esophagus which

Needs to be removed


26. A problem emerged and

He was called upon

To use his skills

To resolve the problem


27. He didn’t answer them

For a while, when he

‘Ventually answered demand he

Puts across can’t be met


28. Pleaded and pleaded with

Him for reconsideration but

He did not answer them

Asked them to consult other


29. If thou consult others

From other islands for

This, you would know

‘Am considerate with thee


30. Island leaderships met severally

Eventually resolved to go

Along with his demands

Then, heard the news


31. A young unknown guy emerged

Indigene of island has

Emerged in the line

Of such skills a-while


32. Limited number of people

Within island knew this

Now that they are in

Strait gate, told leaderships

Source

33. Covertly for fear of

Negativity if it’s a lie

Interviewed the young guy

He showed them his worth


34. They were dumbfounded of

What they heard and

Were convinced of what

He has shown ‘em


35. Resolved to try even

If at higher costs

If he fails, took

Him to the zone


36. He excellently performed those

Things they had been

Paying for, not asked

For did the thing


37. Island became free of

The pangs of the giant

When he heard he

Said it couldn’t be


38. He was ignored by

All as people started

Singing about the naïve

Unknown guy, new savior


39. Giant's statues in center

Of island was demolished

Those at homes were

Replaced with naïve guy


40. Giant covered with shame

Weeks after found dead

In his apartment as

Island remain peaceful ever
