IN HONOR OF THE MEMORY OF
PROFESSOR IGOLIMA AMACHREE
By Togba-Nah Tipoteh

The News just reached town
About a Friend in academic gown
Who passed the people’s way
Has just passed away
Born in Nigeria
He passed through Liberia
And Liberia passed through him
Like the sound of a favorite hymn
Teaching at the University of Liberia
Bringing diversity from Nigeria
To enhance knowledge for all
That was his legacy call
Graded so well in African culture
He wedded the beautiful Myra to seal his future
Yes, this was Professor Igolima Amachree
Who planted seeds for the African tree
Seeds now bearing the African paw-paw
Tasting justice for peace through the African jaw-jaw
Talking with jaws under the Palaver Hut
Rather than fighting with guns under the killer’s glut
Now, we come to bid our Brother farewell
Hoping that in the yonder he will fare well
