See comments for Caliph Aliyu’s Victory, I (Work 25).
1 We thank God that we were
Victorious: O people give thanks
2 To God the Bountiful that we might
For ever praise Him by day and by night
3 Dan Mari fled having achieved
Nothing, only a glance backwards as he ran.⁴⁹⁶
4 He was completely bewildered, lost,
Not knowing which route he was taking.
5 When Mayaƙi⁴⁹⁷ fled he went with all speed
Not waiting for a horse.
6 The whole army was destroyed
The unreliable intriguers!
7 Six hundred were killed
And sixty, all in a brief moment....
