ROLES

Creation in nations had stations of rations
Odomankomah so made it all
Fitness in unfitness
Unfitness in fitness
A completeness of complementations

II
That is why –
…there are talls in fit of shorts
That is why –
…there are fats in fit of slim
That is why –
…there are fair –
…in fit of dark
That is why –
…there are strong in fit of the weak
Equality means not the inexistence of inequalities

III
Equality –
…means respect
…through inequalities
Equality –
…means recognition
…through different abilities
Equality –
…means acknowledgement
…in vice versahood
Equality –
…means live and let’s live

IV
Equality –
…is no war for lessons
Equality –
…is no alienations
…of winners from losers
Equality –
…is no fabɛwɔso
Fingers touch strings for sounds to birth
Harmony is the centre of equality

V
So brother –
…cook all you can
…womanhood is not in the ingredients of the kitchen
Sister –
…work all you can
…manhood is not in the thrill of the workplace
An akatim-akapen from bathrooms to parked cars
…brothels to quick doings
Can fill not the void of a mortal pair
A hen needs its cock
A cock needs its hen

VI
So let’s stop marking time
…and start marking differences
…differences of abilities and capabilities
So we can co our habits
…in consciousness of our extremities
And make this short life span
…a worthwhile experience
This bickering blocks our awareness
…until the grave calls huuuu
To our sad frets of regrets
