THE HUNGRY EARTH

Every hen must hatch

They must onto their fertility latch

If their desire is to live long

And freely be strong.

Every cock must crow

No matter their blow

The poor hencoop is tired of the increasing roosters

And it cripples without notice of its welfare

The hungry hens think of their young ones

The crippled hencoop thinks of its welfare

The angry cocks think of their stomachs and loins

While the forever hungry earth opens its mouth

For consumption of inhabitants who fail the life test

The land feels no remorse

Because it still grieves for its fertile parts being blinded with concrete

So it takes whatever is given to it

And does not bother to give anything in return

It laughs and laughs while the gate of its mouth opens

For the fluids of the hens, cocks and chickens to quench its thirst

While their lifeless bodies sustain this dry earth.

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. :)
