Things are knocking things
Making humanity more laughable
If spiders build human houses
And dogs build webs
If ants stay in caves
As lions stay in anthills
I guess creation will turn upside down

Here we are
Drawing many a bar
Some hens pretend to be cocks
Some cocks pretend to be hens
As madness draws its curtains on decency
Crowning atrocities in open kingdoms

Fancy a cock-like hen
Crowing at dawn with its voice
Which lacks harmony with nature
And chasing after cocks
Like real cocks chase after hens
Trying so hard to discard them
Like its displaced feather each day
Just imagine
Can’t cocks be cocks
And hens, hens?

Fancy a cock-like hen
Pretending to have no charm
Concealing its hearts’ harm
Making no qualms
About their conquests
Can’t cocks be cocks
And hens, hens?

Fancy a cock-like-hen
In apparel befitting cocks
Parading about in the midst of cocks
Anouncing its desires for cocks
And its hatred of chickens
When it owns no pump
And tries to hide its barrel
This humanity stinks

What about the hen-like-cocks
Who love to imitate hens to the tee
Their gait reflecting hens in mockery
Forgetting they can never lay eggs
Let alone hatch
Who mocks the creator this way?

Fancy hen-like-cocks
Desiring real cocks and vice versa
We have managed to turn down the sky
As the earth rolls unsuccessfully up
Chaos upon chaos upon chaos!
Commas now start sentences
As full stops chase every alphabet
Still I have no understanding of happenings

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)
