SEASON VISITS EYES, POCKETS AND HEAT

ghana_flag_a

Who is there?

Oh all are here!

I see the things

Which Christmas brings

But my pocket cries out

And my mouth does pout

II

Who sees it?

Oh all feels it

Many are those 

Who’ll think of overdose

To end the shame

And get a loose name

III

Who is happy?

Oh the sit-and-eats

Who cares about money

When all they need is honey?

They sit and wait

To eat until late

IV

Who will enjoy?

Oh Pastors with joy

For all will give

And all will leave

God’s coffers sits

Crying to be liberated into their pits

V

Who will suffer?

Oh all will suffer

From the foot=mat wives

Whose meals delay

To the hungry child

The streets beget

VI

Who will feel the heat?

Oh all without generators

For ECG tightens his belt

Every watt for two dark pelts

Don’t be alarmed,

It is to check deaths

VII

So flow to the village

Drink from the Densu River

Eat from Assase Yaa

Inhale from the noses of green plants

And let the flies lick your buttocks

Who knows, the gods of your land

Might just reveal your heirloom

And save you from this misery

Or worst, make you a stooge master!
