ARCHAIC STAR FOR GHANA (HAIKU)

ghana_flag_a

Hear me blacks in arks

Change the colour of your star

So we can go far

II

You know black for death

You use red for hot danger

These we have, what now?

III

We are on travel

And our star dims like black coal

No wonder we stand

IV

We stand with no walks

Our legs are like pegs on lines

What leads who herein?

V

It is time for change!

Let the black turn to sun bright,

And lead for follow

VI

Dim, it blends with dark

Dim, its whims tear limbs like strings

Original, please!
