AVENGING SOULS

(To all followers and readers, due to some personal problems,  I am taking a break from blogging for some few weeks. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. Thanks for all your love. I leave you with this) Sold souls saunter like savages Screening sabres Sacking strange sailors Screaming and sailing Silencing in sarcasms Stealing […]

CAN I HATE THE COLD?

Can I hate the cold And its mother rains? Can I? Like horrified frogs Eyes will pop to see the demonic words Walk majestically out of my mouth Why will I? They would ask When the kind rains nurse the earth And mate seeds to grow To feed all Including the ungrateful me II I […]

IN THE LAND OF DREAMERS

In the land of dreamers Beds and pillows are horses Sleep; reins Which trot them to all their desires Their only set backs are When nature calls And when hunger and thirst pinch II The neighbouring land of dreamers Is fantasies Whose work tools are immobility And imagination of wishes Like magicians They get to […]

NOISE (CRAZY STANZAS)

To the devout Christian When the Islamic cock crows It is noise unprecedented II To the committed Muslim Sounds of claps Loud voices of prayers Stomping feet in Satanic battles Are like disco songs In their tired beds Unnecessary noise III To the African traditionalist Muslims are parodies of the alien Mohammed (SAW) Their laughable […]

WOMANIC HELL (CRAZY STANZAS)

CHOOSE YOUR BATTLEFIELD

Angry rains Slow drains Causing flooding In innocent crowding Why? II Little fire embracing an Airy empire Causing burns In flowery forests Why? III Check your grounds To choose your battlefields Check your drains To pour your rains To eliminate fires on your conscience Where you reside forever Amoafowaa Sefa Cecilia (c) 2016

JUST BE YOU

COMPLACENCY

It is that time When ability matches agility And humility fears no fatality Kicking strength like a football Marking sanctity where banality lived II A rabbit has won Won a wrestling match After defeating a lion Its weak paws gnawing at its strong neck Lion furs aiding its strength Horrified eyes look Begging for their […]

FLEETING

FOWL’S FOUL PLAYING

WHEN DEATH HURTS

It stirs the pots of love On bright fires of happiness And takes out the juiciest meats Leaving soups watery with their crumbs II When death hurts It swoops down like a hawk And arrests the most promising chickens Leaving its family too stifled to weep III When death hurts Tears hide from eyelids Fancying […]

IN MY WILL

POLITRICKMANIANS

A nation’s dictation Is a need in deception Well, man’s creative sensation Failure of creation Is filth covered in adoration Separation is no emancipation But a concoction of suffocation The only salvation Is truth which hovers like the sky But eternally covered by dark clouds Which blind to mislead How sickening!

BOW IN SHAME

Who will Protect Me from You?

CAGES (CRAZY STANZAS)

HUMAN SNAILS

Crawling snails Are scarier than jumping goats They are armed by silence And aided by care Let all heads be still in listening Do snails have noisy footsteps?

FALLEN CROWNS

THIS WAITING

Clicks with flicks On lawn at dawn Born anger seems torn Like a cool dress turned rag II The waving-swooning-moon The sympathetic gazes of the tickly-giggly-stars The tired-dozing night birds Who are fighting sleep to catch this climax Make me wish for wings III Like a cozy teddy bear I have hugged you a million […]

THE WORTHLESSNESS OF LIFE

KINGS AND BEGGERS
