Her face is pale

Her breast has turned stale

No great air for her weak children to inhale

All her knights have decided not to bail

Her strong children, like brainless goats, fail

As all her fishes are turned into “koobi and momoni” 

Cooked and fried, others will eat, love, breathe and exhale


A hit on others for their freedom, they hail

Wannabe livers have turned to their tails

As rebels are thrown in horror wardens’ jail

Oh why justice, like Jesus, is nailed

As lies and rubbish is parcelled and mailed

 “Omanba mapa” I rise so quailed


If only greed will turn into rubber and sail

Into a hell where it can burn and fail

As mouths with needs are shut from many a tale

Then even the blind can be provided a braille

To read and know all right from wrong

And like humans boxed out of a veil

Success will out and lead her state

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. :)
