Call grandma from beyond

Call daddy from above

Call all the ancestors who reign

To help fix my taste-buds


At first it tasted light soup

And rejected it, I blamed the cook

Then it tasted banku and okro

It repelled it, and again the cook suffered

Many a cook suffered blame

Then I tried raw sugar

Still, this taste bud rejected it

Sending signals of its sourness

The doctors say they see nothing.

Is a rebelling tongue a normal trend?


Please let the seers be at work

To keep this tongue in check

And send it to apologise

To all the good cooks trashed

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. :)
