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 tongues to attract claps?

Children who betray and open your doors to stray cats?

Mother Ghana speak on your birthday!

Let us know about your wishes for development like all sane mothers

Let us know your yearnings for us to grow us and you

This is a day to grant you all

Help you rise from all your falls

And if you call

We will heed and please

So do take this chance to get release
