As the speakers sound

Loudly at 4am and the

Churches beam with drums,

Tamborines, songs of worship,

We hope for a calm good day


But like always, robbers

Prepare for their escapades

Prophetic rituals

Call on minds of vulnerables

And needy and sorrowful


Can we talk of the

Cunning tricksters, whose carvings

Beat minds of sages?

Ah! If you don’t know, then you

Have never been their victim


Would we leave out the

Planning murderers Who zap

Lives they cannot give?

Even tears of the short lived

Cry to harm our peaceful air


And the others follow

I will say, a pox on you!

You whose thoughts would break

Hell today and make history

Stain with gumptions on the clear

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. :)
