Dead goat


Ayie ase anibre


Marks of red

Why are we in a red May Day?

Grumbling workers!

Feeding on their skins

Swimming in debts

Roasting in hunger

And fuming in anger!

“Aniwa aniwa abiri biri asoso gya”


It is a red May Day

Hearts with hurts’ field day

Hands with canes

Chasing an active dead goat

Whose ghost does hunt

Haunting with vigorous changes

With fingers of magnetism

Attracting coffers of the nation


Will we see

Naked buttocks of angry beauties

Dragging through mud

In patriotic duties?


Will we see

Angry hot mobs

With killy weapons

And brave hearts

Evading the Flagstaff house

To finally burn their dead goat?


Will we see

Sane thought beings

Planning a good poll coup

To oust the dead goat

And bring a strong work being?


I don’t know

We wait to see

It is a Red May Day

We hope for a White Victorious End

Where we will sing our say

As bones of tiredness

Sleep in rest

On mattresses of satisfaction

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. :)
