BARTER CERTIFICATES

20140904_162049

Beginners were educated by nature

No barter education

Money now changes hands for a paper future

Like it changes hands for the pride of the nation

Crumbling the nation

No skills seep through head veins of many creatures

But they hold certificates worth the adoration

Who are we cheating?

Fake peacocks’ wings will be revealed

When winds angrily kick off their feathers 

We dance to the tunes of papers

And the songs are shelved attracting dusts in rust

We are to be pitied in these times!

We are to be pitied in these times!!

We are to be pitied in these times!!!

These times, when whites are blacks in bought eyes

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. :)

Excellent, my Dear Amoa! And not only that. It is not only that we have Paper, not Brains. To BUY that paper, politicians and the corrupt make people pay, pay, pay. And when caught, they Kill, kill, kill. …This is happening in India JUST NOW, 40 deaths in about 3 years, 3 deaths in the last 48 hours.
