Patrick Obahiagbon mourns Mandela with Words

obahiagbonIt wouldn’t be proper if such an icon as Nelson Mandela passed away and veteran ‘vocabularist’ Patrick Obahiagbon didn’t mourn him in his own way. Below are his words mourning Mandela’s passing.

“Alas the loss of the great Titan . . . the great one who pricked himself on a senticous bush as he pushed for the freedom of his people from oppression . . . An epitome of sophronization . . .

“We shall not cry, rather we will celebrate a life truly well lived . . .

“Rest in peace Madiba.”
