EATERS OF OURSELVES

Image

Fishes convene for a solution on safety

The president of anchovies narrates his loss

His world is evaded each blessed day

His subjects are killed in million folds

 

The herring president narrates his plight

His country has alien eyes which watch their growth

Many like prisoners are caught, killed and caged

To please a world unknown to them

 

The salmon president stands to say

He has heard of how nice their bodies taste

So his country is almost at the verge of extinction

Because their eaters crave for more

 

The lobster president sadly says

He knows his people are caught and fried

And many are rudely killed and dried

While others are horribly grinded just to keep other worlds happy.

 

The shark president gets up and shouts for quietude

Why are they telling depressing stories

When they must find solutions to their losses?

He shuts their mouths and gets them thinking

 

President Anchovies gets up to fearlessly say

“What can we come together to solve?

How do we get a good solution

When other animals contribute to our loss?”

 

President Salmon retorts: “We are not here to lay such blames

We must survive no matter what

And if your death will help me to,

Then there is no need for me to die”

 

There is chaos at the fish meeting

Every small fish cries audibly foul

As many big fishes cry ‘silly accusations’

They fight and fight until some get wounded

 

President Tilapia shouts and says

We will always be preyed upon

Why won’t we? Because we are eaters of ourselves

How can any resistance be raised against eaters from the air and  land?

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. :)
