TRIBAL HULLABALOO (CRAZY STANZAS)

When I ‘broke my hand’
And sought a band
Nana and Maame met in a band
To sing tribal tunes

II
They started by singing of Ewes
And how they are named after an animal
And raised their vocals like daunting pianists
To sing tales of the wickedness of the animal tribe
Their love for blood
In revenge
Their yearning for stealing rather than being given
Their love for spells
“Tukwei” Killing in just seven days
And their trait of marrying their own
Even after marrying from another tribe
Nothing was good about them in mama and grandma’s duet
