Man your mouth
…to mum your mess
Many mechanics muster mockery
…in marking mouth monsters with many a mar

When Akosua Akonfem
Chirped about her escapades
…in her drunkenness
Yaw Akoko crowed it loudly
…the next day
…to wake the whole village
Oh Odomamkomah!
She wore her room as an attire
…refusing to take it off during the day
…in her hide and seek game with embarrassment
Until she connived with the dark
…to flee this village

Let’s not go far
Remember Yaw Badu?
That man whose mouth was used
…as the punching bag of Kofi Duro
Because he became the parrot who sang
…about his supposed many affairs
…to their church choir
…who in turn turned up the melody after a church service
…to lavender Kofi with disgrace
Ah, that one koraa,
…was it verified that Kofi was a womanizer?
Ei! Look at me too o!

Let’s take Papa Azambila
That foreigner who stood in a secret hole
…to dirtily rap about his feeding hands
…boasting superiority
…bastardizing those hardworking hands in inferiority
By the time he got home
His bragging had developed legs
…to walk to tell his hands
Isn’t he now languishing in hunger?

Many have bought spaces for themselves in prisons
…because wɔn ano ati free
Many have harvested hatred from lovers
… because wɔn ano ati free
Many have killed innocents
…and are living with many a guilty conscience
…because wɔn ano ati free
Many have turned mice
…being hunted down by cats
… because wɔn ano ati free
Many live like fearful ghosts scaring off good hosts
…because wɔn ano ati free
So man your mouth
…just work on the brakes of your mouth
…to have a free heart
…and a clear head

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. :)
