PIETY IN RAMADAN (HAIKU WITH A TWIST)

Ramadan

All ablutions apt

Proud pious people praying

Bow before Allah

II

Aboabo is chaste

Showing good of Ramadan

Abuse? Forgiven!

III

I remember a

Day after Ramadan left

Its footsteps were heard

IV

Abudu just said 

“Shegia!” and his mouth was snatched

By sharp machetes

V

Amina just puffed

And her body was found in

Bosom of gutter

VI

Why can’t you stay here?

Why can’t you stay here forever?

Ramadan please stay!

VII

Stay to roast chaos

In the box of heartlessness

For peace to sit on its throne

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. :)

Ramadan is observed so the peace in that month can be practiced for the rest of the year. That month is like a practicing drill but *sigh* we never look for the deeper meanings.

Very well written.

Those who take the lives of innocent people and then observe Ramadan without acknowledging the message of peace within faith! Heartbreaking and hypocritical.

I think your poem shows the hypocritical nature of that very well.
