He is fine and suave

And so wears them

Wears them holes like clothes


He has an overall in his huge house

One that all his family knows

One that God’s hands have sealed

One that all close acknowledge


I am awed to a point

At the overall’s removal

In replacement with many different coloured shirts

When he steps out

Sometimes some second hand trousers

Oh! He also makes some shoes he wears around

I don’t want to mention the supporters he purchases

At public restings

“Ei Akuwa yi! Wo dwene sɛ wo yɛ guy”

You can taste all honeys

But one calabash may call its bees

It is there that the goat will see

That beyond stubbornness

Its meat can be made tender and sweet

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. :)
