THE LaLiga CRAZE

“We will win
…the away
…even if we lost
…our home match
Did you see?
Did you see
…the Mané goal?
Nothing fine pass it”
Ha!
My ears kept searching
…for even the toenails of Asante Kotoko’s mention
Wires in my ears kept tuning
…waiting for Hearts of Oak’s fingernail in mention
But none appeared
…for eyes to even proceed to look
…for Oly Dade
…nankampɛsɛ Wa All Stars
In the modelling words
Walking from tongues
…of the bugged

II
Sitting like a ghost
…waiting for my host to finish
…his banter to me serve
It happened so fast
Fists flying
…like unseen arrows
With their vindictive word follows
Just the air around a fist
…uprooted my buttocks
…from my tall stool
…landing me flat
…onto the punching ground

III
So a legend of a passionate
…who might have a black phobia
Was called
…a joke
And another’s
…was called
…aboa
So
…ɔtwea
Was exchanged with
…apɔkye
Gyimii
Faced the slap of
…kwasea
Until those words armoured with
…knives
…and guns
…and bombs
Exploded like tsunamis
…onto the bodies
…taking possession on tickets of
…anger

IV
Dragging myself like a lost cripple
…through the mess
I thought of the gains
…in the passions of others’ gains
Are there dollars
…given in gains
…to all the insanes
…on this land?
Do those legends
…even wave in knowledge
…of the existence
…of their loving persistent crazed fans
…on this black soil?
Aren’t there pressing matters
…begging for attention
…than murdersome passions
…for mere games of others?
Can’t we strive to just build ours?
Will they ever sit
…to watch our locals play
…and even smile at their skilled foot talks
…let alone have passions for them?

V
I am shocked, knowing the bananas used to link our recruited to monkeys
…still thinking it through
Goosebumps of negation
…traffic-lighting on my skin
The land overlooked
Concentration –
…over booked
…on senselessness
…no, sensefulness
Of profit-nils of other lands
Beats the hope
…of a brighter tomorrow
…out of my aching dreams
