MAYWEATHER

I see the money weather Even after the taunting shower That led to the punching rains Which bloated your opponent’s treasured eye land I must confess you tower More like the Everest of fists In this generation II Left fist like a power volcano Right fist like a bomb slap Speed in punches like a […]

​CRY THE NATION

Many sicknesses walk  On the body of my motherland Causing it to walk naked on the global market Every pore battles an unhealing sore Sore of greed concreting each founding ailment Why doctors are like its grim reapers I am still sitting under the sky of reasoning Trying to catch a raindrop of understanding Which […]

​SORROW OF THE LAND

Once upon a time Our land was a loamy rhyme Our airs sang for happy trees to chime A bite was meant to tease tongues from lime But all that, now, means no dime II When the cloth of colonialism Met the scissors of independence And freedom apparels were carefully tailored by hope Little did […]

​WHEN WATERS RUN WILD

It is like the best servant of mankind It is like the humble air holding our precious lives It is like the great explorer and traveler When it is given its due II Time has travelled to a place Where many things imprison this saving servant To think river channels lie in even mobile beings […]

HOPE INTACT

​There is an irony in sight  Where vision is concerned That part where the blind looks forward to tomorrow Despite all the sorrow That part of the mind which no one borrows No matter how shallow Is the lid of hope So why will I mope? II Even snakes, dwelling on their venom Instill fear […]

BRAINWASHING

​Alien things are swallowing ours Their gluttony making them relegate their teeth to the background As their tongues fold to push Through the mortar of their mouths Everything with an African tag II Civilization first removed our eyeballs And replaced them with artificial ones Making seers the abominations they abhorred Banishing themselves through shrines they […]

SHOW US YOU

The sounds of nature stamps your existence Your bodiless presence calls for some insistence Of evidence of your presence Despite many testimonies of the taste of your essence II You are who you are Though we know not when you were But are dying to share In your kingdom at any fare III We wish […]

​THE HUMAN ANIMAL

I do not know Who carved the show I do not know  Who gave that blow That a girl was an animal Not a tigress nor a lioness Not an elephant nor an eagle Not a dove nor of love But a sheep which needed its herdsman Or a hen needed to hatch or be […]

​LOVING NOW

I know many of us are everything but perfect Sometimes assuming positions of trouble prefects But life’s ink  Has risen for all who sink And it makes me think II I see all live in gardens of flowers Bathed in many praising showers But like dead wood in a king’s court They feel not So […]

​KƐTƐASESHƐ NE PRƆYƐ

The mind is a scary part A part which houses and nurses all it is given Be it in light of good Or in doom of bad No ripe orange on a flat ground Falls far from its tree And a rotten palm nut amidst the many Carves vampire teeth on the others  Even after […]

KAWOLA? UBEISON!

​Everything atop seems supreme Many pant to climb to mountain tops And jubilate as winners in the end Many eyes look up to the sky in reverence or solicitation Even though legs mate the earth So why do you sleep naked on this Ghanaian floor Regarded as the pauper of the nation? II From Yaa […]

GOD (CRAZY STANZAS)

​In the wake of this take Make me windbreaks that will all hurdles absorb Be like the unbreakable bubble surrounding me Even as rains of drains seek all grains of sanes II Ahonu-abobirim! As a mind which descended from the stairs of a sage I lay my body before thy feet Burn the evils in […]

HOW GHANA GAINED INDEPENDENCE BY NANA APAU

UGCC born August 4, 1947 – died February 8, 1951 –  the day that music died. The so-called Danquah-Busia-Dombo (NLM/UP/PP/NPP) – DBD Tradition and its spokespeople like Paul Adom Otchere fail to take into account the mass factor in the nationalist movement in the history of Modern Ghana. The adherents of this DBD Tradition tend […]

​YOUR OWN BI YOUR OWN

Birds know they own their nests And love the inn eventhough they know the existence of hunters Bats love their standing trees in the midsts of tree cutters Worms mate the earth in style Even in places pickaxes dig Why won’t our elders say None uses his left hand to point at his father’s house? […]

​LOOMING DOOM

This chest feels so stuffy Threatening tears which would drown these eyes puffy Giving an uncomfortable holiday to the mind Making this bed frown at the night load Which fails to heed to the call of mobility II Cloud of our end looms As a frightening beginning, in fast speed, zooms Whips of pain of […]

​STRAY HANDS

I know the throat can nag And force a king to lie on a rag When its demands for water through its pipe is not met II I know the stomach can thunder When its bond with food is put asunder Giving in to any bet III I know eyes close not When their vessels […]

​BE LIKE THE SKY

The sky has many eyes Because of its strength Its face is like a park without an owner But it still remains firm II There are passing clouds Which never succeed in wiping its beautiful blue There are heated suns Which never get to melt its clarity There are the moons backed by stars Which […]
