When you see the fever

And you see the shiver

And you see some blood

Coupled with some blisters

Or even one of these, let emotions fly


The victim can be your mother

Your child or your lover

They’ve actually done nothing

But monsters  may live in them

Monsters who seek your head


Even if it is you, run to the nearest hospital

Or call a good healthcare

And stay away

Don’t be swept by dismay

And wear a rubber protective set


No handshaking

No kissing

No hugging

Avoid walking coughs

And cover your coughs


For safety sake

Let hand washing be your take

Be highly awake

To avoid casual sweat mates

And shy from public fluids and defecation


This is ebola

A virus as hungry as a lioness

A virus more poisonous that cobra

So calm your fears and be alert

In care and politeness

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. :)


This is one scary monster. A modern day plague to be sure and it is sad that it has not gotten the attention that it deserves. Only when it knocked on the United States borders did my government begin to take this seriously and invest research and money into trying to control it. All of Africa is in my prayers.


I’ve been to the mountain of pain maybe not as you but I have seen death of my loved one’s . Now each experience pain differently. Just as death. Life isn’t always with a happy ending. But this life with each comes another.
