“Bue! Ouch! Agyeiiii!
Meku la! Aaaaah!”
Sounds of today
Like a deathzone
Everything reeks mourning
From shooting of God’s men in church
To thunders lighting the fires of flood to “ghosten” beings
Sounds of today!

“Ei! Eh? Wosh!
Suprising sounds of today
Hidden answers find themselves naked on the market
Prostituting and luring innocent minds currupted by cheap success
Fermented sounds of today!

“Saaah? Really?
Awurade! Krono nie!”
Shocking sounds of today
Securities of state properties are the thieves they seek
Making salaries of their instituted security bonus stealings
Crippling the poor contributor
Like polio on high voltage
Silly sounds of today!

“Hri baba baba baba
Baba baba baba
Blood of…”
Selling God like kola in papers and coins
Preachers turned rich while the preached hung and thirst
Sacrifices to God praying in trusted stomachs
Sacrifices of God melted, polished to brighten on His senders
Ha ha ha ha!
Sounds of today

Sounds of today are like torture tools
They pull our nails like hardened prisoners
They burn bodies like heated irons
They drown our happiness like vast seas
Even sweetened bitterness has drowned its sweet
Sounds of today!
Sounds of today!
Sounds of today!
