On The Banks Of The Niger

On the banks of the Niger, a woman is in agony; On the banks of the Niger, a baby screams;

On the banks of the Niger, a woman is in agony
On the banks of the Niger, a baby screams
"The gods be praised; the bloodline will continue."
"Wait, what is that mark?... It's an ogbanje!
The silence is deafening.
On the banks of the Niger, a mother wails
On the banks of the Niger, a ritual takes place
"The throne cannot be polluted."
"Tufiakwa" "Aru"
On the banks of the Niger, a baby's blood is spilled
On the blood-filled banks of the Niger, another sacrifice is made.
