Waakye tasted sweet

In ‘ahaban’

Palm wine tasted fresh

In calabashes

Water battled thirst

Fresh from the streams

Food healed best

Straight from the farms

We say ‘open eyes’

And we get all the harm

We only get the second-handed-

‘Ofoooos’ in everything

We send many

But they end up choking,

Choking our businesses

And seizing our land

This continues, and we’re doomed

NOTE: In times past, pollution, horrible littering, synthetic foods, were alien in Africa and for that matter Ghana. I don’t know what changed, but in my few years on earth, I’ve grown to see us using things the earth cannot decompose. I hope we reverse this now that we’re battling scrap dumping as this can also cause a huge mess.

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. :)
