Encomium | Alpha Robinson pays tribute to late Hon Omar (O.J) Jallow

Late Hon Omar Amadou (O.J) Jallow  | Former NAWEC boss, Alpha Robinson’s solemn tribute to the late venerable Hon Omar (O.J) Jallow | By Alpha Robinson In memory of Honourable Omar Amadou Jallow, alias OJ, as I remember him. He contributed his quota! Sincere condolences to his family and loved ones. May he Rest In Peace in Janatul Firdaus. He spoke - a poem  He spoke when most were mute He said it as it was, standing on refute  He refused to bow when many froze in salute He spoke  He looked the devil in the eye without a flinch  They could not move him an inch A man wearing a demeanor without a switch Staring at death without a twitch  He spoke So Honourable you are rich While they scramble for earthly material riches Men and women in frantic pitching Yours truly found a niche In the corner of glorious loners by choice He spoke  You looked your tormentor in the eye and smiled  Yes, with a broken eye you looked and smiled To help heal broken hearts To help mend the broken man by a mile
