Contemplation on the Odu Ogbe Otura

We are in an eternal battle to find balance
in a world where adding or subtracting
always results in odd numbers
Master sometimes rejects human nature
to abdicate the thrown
and submit to another
Slave sometimes gives in to human nature
and when given power
becomes the master previously reviled
our eternal struggle to find balance
belies our inability to actually find it
is balance not about equality at all
but the search for that point at which
the powerful are not so powerful that
the powerless slip off the scales
balance is about not allowing the scales to tip wildy
making only small shifts this way and that
slowly creating a sustainable middle way
