  • We are telling Elegba, hey!
  • The mouse’s voice (Elegba) you are good, but the party is over - do not cry
  • Elegba has the outside, laroye, don’t cry here on earth
  • Energy isn’t created — it’s neither created nor distroyed… it’s there, it’s eternal, it changes, it goes on
  • We don’t want that energy of chaos, the energy of the crossroads - we don’t want that ALL the time. We ask Eshu to go outside
