There was a hen 

Which lived wrong

Its resolves were strong

Although its father was stern


It went to work

Looking very bright

And giving all fright

Its responsibilities shirk


It perplexed humans to bits

Making women cry out

And scared children to shout

Making men throw fits


Then celebrations dawned

And called for meat

Though many old hens dragged tired feet

It was the one all mouths pawned


It woke up making sure all are wronged

None bothered, for they awaited the feast

It stepped on a pot which caged the beast

And ended up satisfying all it had wronged


I need not tell of its shouts for long

Calling all to give aid

But none any attention paid

Because it lived a life so wrong

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. :)
