STAKES (FOR GHANA’S 2018 INDEPENDENCE CELEBRATION)

There has been a crawling baton
Since Nkrumah’s power run
In leading change
Still, we live through the smiles of moderation
In the ills of corrupt adorations
Gunning for greed in place of fertile seeds
Hating on whistleblowers in place of their hailing
Accepting crumbs for much sums
Never calculating the future’s profits in kind
And always thinking in the now
Yet we flow with sunrises thanking God
For trees which beg to be made into furniture
Suns which beg to live in the dark
Foods which tell tales of serving in cans
Seeds whose end products could give us much

II
From the rich cocoa lands
To the rich mineral lands
The fertile grounds to the strong beings
Right to theories left without practicalities
Fingers finger holes of darkness around the light
Yet hope glares
From its tiny corner
Hoping its pupils will be caught in the rays of ambition
To give excelling opportunities
To this royal dressed like “Korean Candy” and
Placed right in shrouds of development

III
We will figure it out
This chemistry of harmonisation and time consciousness
We will figure it out
This physics of nation building and work consciousness
We will figure it out
This art of syncing to the tune of success through hardwork
We will figure it out
This mathematics of development
Through the Woyomic confusions
To the Gyeeda embarrassment
Through the uncountable judgement debts
To the carnivorous roads
Through our shaking lights
To our here and there waters
Clothed in our love for culture and ourselves
We will figure it all out
The mass wealth with no formula for end products
For we are combinations of the best colours there are
Blood, minerals and green vegetations
Whose middle hosts the brightest blackness
With a general shine
For we are miracles by birth
So shackles are not unbreakable
We are the Gold Coasters turned Ghanaians
And proudly so
Long live Ghanaians
Long live Ghana
