CHEWING GUMS

Listen!
Sweet scented gums of today
Your parceling is cool
Your taste is sweet
Beware of teeth of grinders

II
When they get you
They will strap you naked
Prepare their tongues
In their horrid holes
And put you in between their monstrous teeth

III
They will chew and chew
Chew and chew
Like grinding mill
Grinding a soft maize
And when they seize all your sweets
Your left rubber
Will be thrown out
Like an unneeded thing
Leaving you at the mercy
Of flies and dust
Amoafowaa Sefa Cecilia (c) 2016
