AFRICAN BOASTERS (SUCCESSIVE CLERIHEWS)

Professor Yaw Darko

Hated Mr. P aul Arko

He claims he copies westerners

While he epitomises Africanness

II

He wears African colours

And hates all foreign “shudders”

He speaks in African tongue

And so feels among

III

He fights Mr. Paul Arko

Who is not like he Darko

Because he wears foreign

And drives cars like he is soaring

IV

Ei! Darko gets some money

And gets a car to get some honey

Before any African style could speak

He has reached his foreign peak

V

And so his people asks him

Why are you now called Tim?

He thinks aloud

And shouts, money maketh foreign

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. :)
