It takes a smell to attract flies

Dirt always attract pigs and not penguins

A magnet always attract pins

So consent is key for it to be

Eyes must always be used to see

Carelessness always comes with a fee


You sit in the comfort of your canoe in your pool

Looking keenly for one who would steer your boat

When there is a hurricane outside and not close

You choose to invite lions to your pool

Of course what lions want are human meals

Don’t close your ears, just listen at ease


Lions will never ask to be invited

With their pictures on request

Most will choose that of a sheep

To gain the pass and soothe their mouths

A scary breed must have a greedy thought

In order to help it to live long


There is nothing like a cheap cooked meal

All will have to go through the pot

If the cook decides to sit

With legs crossed and hands still

He surely expects no nice meals by the the end of a hungry day

A story of a cheater who is cheated by the cheat


The lion must be blamed for saying he is a sheep

But the farmer must be blamed for not fencing his brains

If there are no dreamy silly thoughts

There’ll surely be no greedy motive

A word to the wise

May really be in the north of his far, far, south.

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. :)
