CORRUPTION’S FINGER AT LAW

unnamed

When rats

Feel threatened

They think of all tricks

But changing their scents

“Akura Woyo w’adi atwi”

II

When threatened dogs

Bark loudest

They fail to think

That sounds attract

“Agya nsem atukwan”

III

When cats

See, blink and quieten

They fail to think

That fire can flood

“Agya! Yani atan”

IV

A finger of corruption

Points at the law

Face of the law cries foul

Who can be trusted?

A good thing some villages hear none

“Agya nsem wↄ world”
