I take a stance

And look from a distance


Chickens like famished children

Wailing in anger

Hens like desperate mothers

Crying in anguish

Cocks like men with bruised egos

Sitting with capped jaws

As the Hawk sits comfortably on his throne


He, the hawk comes down

And takes what he needs to fill his belly

Then climbs up to watch the desperate circus

Any beak which chirps in defiance,

Is made an evening meal

So none thinks to squeal

Fingers on beaks


Funny, the eagle watches

Waiting to devour the hawk and take over

But aims to do it tactfully

So as to get a non scattered empire

There are other animals too aiming

but none has a shot

Because the fowls have made it so.

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. :)
