Earth closes its mouth

When lions ‘void porcupines

Need I mention more?


Long, long, long ago,

When lion was known as the king

He took liberties


When his game finished

He decided porcupine

Is fit to replace


He meant to hit it

Only for thousands of pins

To stand in shooting


With tail in between

Thighs, lion run vacating his throne

That’s trouble-calling


So let the earth rest

As you mark troubled places

So rivers lie cool

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. :)

I very much enjoy your work, this is one of the most powerful Haikus that I have ever read. It truly makes this reader think, i will be rereading it over and over.
