The edible maggots form from the palm nut tree

They come out, wiggle and know they are free

They worship their maker, promising their piousness and their love

Promising their souls and bodies as they look above

Then they touch the ground and eat their god


They wiggle around the home without measure

Eating everything the palm tree treasure

They fight for the food of the other

Forgetting it belongs to neither

Then they lift their eyes to their heaven, and bow.


Palm nut lie decomposing

His creatures fighting for posing

He calls out to them to come to their senses

But all they do is kill even with their natural lenses

Then one of them thinks to write a regulatory book


There was a rush for the book to be booked

After they saw their writer being cooked

They read to live in the teachings of the book

As many others add their versions to get them hooked

They always read the book after they are satisfied with sin


One suggests that they do fast

Because food eventually takes them to dust

They agree to wear their whites

And abstain from all their sinly rights

Only to end and go to the dirt like pigs


Edible maggots why art thou so?

Do you not know you will harsh eternity go?

Whatever it is you will be eaten

Hungry alien species, your taste will smitten

Why then do you live so?


Stop gathering as one

Only to disperse with bruise-like movies to darkness and the sun

Even if you escape mouths and live to the full

Your remains will be swallowed by the earth which will never be full

So live freely and do as you wish, than hypocritically holding on to books under heinous crimes.

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. :)
