Anxious crime! The bells loudly chime! Deeds deal not with dimes! Hold me in your arms Those strong arms […]

A GOD FOR EACH; METHINKS

There must be a God for each! I believe there must be a God for each! Urging on their priced creations Breeding fierce competition Creating chances Being defeated Winning and cheering While they oposing losers cry There must surely be a God for each Creator of a model being to keep Programmer of every soul to […]

CALLING ON THE WITCHES

As time travels to my older soul I feel, in my mind’s palms, the hot coal Dreams are like lighted coals In an airy oven Situated in lairs of lion-like vixens Lairs whose entrance is made of the soils of thorns II Legs have to pierce in tears Eyes need to see their own blood […]

LUSTROUS MOOD

Miles with its wiles Have drawn a picture of longing Drawing mind closer to you Like a magnetic wave Pulled in by a metal wrapped in its interest II Glued in thoughts Separated in body I shake like a leaf in epileptic wind waves Eyes wide open and I fall Eyes tightly closed and I […]

LOST IN THE ENSLAVED SPIRITS

In our ancestors’ future Culture was the path of security Of safety Of enlightenment Of peace Of protection II In our ancestors’ future We were clothed by culture’s silk Adorned by Odomankoma’s mental gold Given extra eyes by the seer of the sky To see distractors To teach and mould aliens to follow And not […]

STRANGE RANGE

Strange range Change arranges not emotions It scatters to litter in bitter happiness Or happy bitterness Like a painter who is colour blind Then carves familiarity like a new wife And makes all humans new husbands II strange range Wigs were once wicked spirits’ possessions Which needed days of emptied stomachs To deliver in heavenly […]

FEMINISTIC LOTUSES

Vessels of love! Beautiful houses of homes! Owners of completeness! Fertile lands of the earth! Faces of welcomes! Bosses! Clearer of loses! Visions of clearer choices! Hearts like springs of goodness! Plants with nutritious breasts of vitality! Skies with lighted suns and moons! With stars which work to train fireflies To replace them to lead […]

WHEELS OF CHANGE

At the mercy of the sentient being Whose breath was like mono gas With an elephantine emotion Which jumped like a servant at his command I croaked like a choked frog In his hidden gutters Gutters which obeyed their master In soundproofing, aiding and abetting the crime of pain II Daylight now flood the candle […]

GET YOUR WISH! OH MOTHER GHANA!

They say life begins at forty A year to pension, what have you gained? Marriage to many lands in bonds of servitude? Knees kissing gravels to lower thy face? A broom to sweep your dirt under your tattered mat? A choir to sing your horrids as flourishes? A heart to collect unwanted scraps And use […]

RHYTHMS OF INDEPENDENCE

CRASHING AMERICA (CRAZY STANZAS)

You were beautiful Your coconuts’ early openings just wonderful Your need to lead  Overbearing but powerful Why do you now look pitiful?
