MANDELA’S MOSQUITOES

I think a mosquito bit Nelson Mandela
An anopheles mosquito
He caught it
But saw it as waste
If he killed a mosquito which could not give him back his blood
And so he let it be
Such a mistake it was

II
So this mosquito went ahead to breed
And bred barbarisms
Lazy cocoons who blame everyone but themselves
For their woes
And so repulsively rebel

III
They demand for knives
Of those who hold their lives
When all they’ll do is butcher
And can’t save a rat
Oh how shameful

IV
To think that those contouric heads
Have nothing better to show
For the blood they took
Who peacefully let them be
Could it be the mosquitoes are on ganja?

IV
Look at the parasites without plans
Acting like Egyptians hurting Israelites
When they know they have a Moses
Whose ordinary stick can plague their land
Ignoramuses!

V
They are breaking their foundation
What will become of a bowl
With a hole so big?
Like owls feared in superstition but mortal
The south mosquitoes will realise too late
Their flaws when the potent mosquito sprays are set on their territories
Too bad it will bomb them
Together with their regret

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. :)
