At prime of his prestigious influence:
Kapkiam, Kabuloin and Pinyin kowtowed at his probing glance.
A possessor of peerless talent, a pit of wits,
A subduer of strife, slander, crimes and pacifier of rifts;
From ridge to ridge, litigants marveled at his celestial excellence.
Attending judicial trials on the left, to settle gruesome grievances,
Those fearful of law on the right confessed before his wisdom;
Issuing colorful verdicts and before a council, the stubborn at heart suddenly in him encountered doom!
At old age, three occasions Arap Terer tendered resignation,
Three times the indignant sovereigns warned retribution;
It‘s to his seasoned apprentice he wished to transfer judicial authority.
Even today, Arap Terer’s steady character is unsurpassed in merit , and tower all in integrity.
