We cover things with things

A little wind clears for the tsunami

A smaller scandal paves way for the bigger

That’s why the Afros are struggling

You say, I say

The work remains

You sleep, I sleep

Our money is locked

You take, I take and all is spent

Africa unite! Africa unite?

When individual countries are apart?

We know the Anago man by his speech and corruption

We know the Ghanaman by his ways and evasive language

We know the Kenyan by speech and shape of head

The South African by speech and gangsterhood

We know the Zimbabwean by his crave for food

Master how can Africa unite?

Give me a dollar

Give me a shoe

If you can’t wear them make my house your damp

I can kneel if you’ll give me just a crumb.

Sitting on goldmine while begging for crumbs?

We hate to work, but love to eat

We love to say but hate to act

How can we be seen as any different?

Let’s pause and take a proper look

The wealth we seek

Is the seat we sit

And a little effort will help us unravel the mysterious master poor.

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)
