Here is the text of Eshu's Voice, paraphrased from various
praise hymns and stories from the Yoruba:
I am Eshu-Elegbara, owner-of-the-power, he who guards the
crossroads. Generous to my friends, those who do not respect my status
I shall bend, like a string upon a bow, or pound like a shell.
When I am fed, there is no danger, but turn your back on
me and strange things begin to happen...
I am the childless, wanderer, alone, moving only as a spirit.
I am he who makes a whistle from the head of a snake.
Favorable, I modify the worst of fates; hostile, I darken
the most brilliant of happenings.
Put your question to me, but before you make your choice, be sure you
have looked at all sides.
