Let’s get out of this uncomfortable stream

Just let’s yell and scream

As fowls scream when fleeing danger

Let’s get out of this dangerous manger

Into a neat peaceful manger

Of the colourless oasis

This filthy muddy poisoned gutter water will not do

We have paid so much and so deserve much more

We have paid too much to be pushed by those we fed and are still feeding

Into a box of death

By suffocating and killing us slowly through our own living water

We are different fishes in this same corrupted deep sea

Though we aim for the flesh of the other

Let’s hold our bloody thirst for each other

And as ants form their strength in times of strain

Hold hands as we take huge difficult steps from this water turned poison

On the vehicle of togetherness

To reach the rich ocean devoid of even dirt

We can part ways then after succeeding to do away with pigs trusted and mandated

To till the sea but ended up turning it into a stinky muddy habitat filled with mono gas

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. :)
