LITTLE BIRD

Little bird …you’re no duck …you’re no eagle You’re a nameless little bird …blessed with wings So fly easy …fly slowly …fly rightly So you don’t get swallowed by the sky Your swiftness in flying high …might cover your steps …making none see you …making many forget you …in your high loss Amoafowaa Sefa Cecilia […]

KƆ KƆ HWƐ

We have the stories Which can cure the sorries And grow our glories But we still live in ruin II As we live in the fence of religion Which prevents us from seeing the beauty of hardwork …outside The castles whose stories can rustle hearts And build our economy to a golden height Are fenced […]

A PLEASANT PLACE

I had heard of the Sakura Flowers Trumpeting technology And greatly maintained culture Before many miles in the sky brought me to your very grounds Just an Appealingly Precious and Amazing New experience! II Many fine hearts wrapped in shy clothes! Many indigenous tongues …hidden in traditional languages! Many disciplined bodies …spiced by courteous moves! […]

DETERMINED

I have jumped through the windows of my heart After its doors were shut by pain …and the keys thrown into the sea of disappointment II I have maneuvered through the ceiling of my mind After its doors and windows …were nailed unopenable …by hounds of hurts III I have shed the skin of my […]

THE ME OF WE

Since I started withdrawing the me …in our we …I see the sea of tears …whose sharks of fears …stalked my growth II Since I started withdrawing the me …from our we The crocodile of nervousness …which threatened my sleep …has left me free IIb The crabs of hurts …which migrated into my intestines …magically […]

LET ME DRIVE YOU

I want to be your chauffeur today I will drive you to the site of your flutters …to dig out your shocking mutters I will drive you to the island of your passions …to gift you memorable reactions I will drive you to the shores of your screams …to fish out the wows in your […]

CRUMBS FOR THUMBS

See the wealthy …oblivious of their wealth Wearing skins of poverty …and acting poor Dumbs beg crumbs to gift their thumbs …ignoring the harms II Oh guinea fowls acting domestic chickens …left roaming during the day …and caged at night Forget not dark holds many an ink …to plan your harm Stop being dumbs begging […]

BODICTATION

Do you make up …to shake up A city But end up …a scare who flares human flight? Then check it II It could be that you’re a lesser anteater Whose body needs ash and lime …to squash a stash of nose blows So like an elephant …be self aware …and work to clear your […]

WHAT IS FAIR

Feed the cattle back their milk Give the dogs back their barks Hand the silkworms back their silk Give the trees back their barks Put the carnassials back in the mouths of the pride of lions Leave the blind to search their own Zions That’s what’s fair! II Turn time into a truck And drive […]

YOU LOOK LIKE MY HOME

You there – …looking so darkingly fair Can’t you see my interest …caught in the rays of your awesome shine? II You there – …making me fidget like a bad queer …looking like a treasure in a dream land Can’t you see me searching your eyes …amidst the many star bugged ones looking? How are […]

CLONES

Sparrows wearing arrows …scenting sorrows …heading hollow zones Force to be no clones II If the metamorphosis of snow …into water Is forcing possibility of a fish …birthing a bird …on a rope of deceptive analogy Then wash your minds with spring water III Just as cats won’t develop wings to fly …pigs won’t turn […]

GODDESSES PAIRING GODS

Grow gutsies gunning gains …in glad games of great gold …to get the gifts of goddesses pairing gods …and not goddesses pairing gross II Wing winners without wanes of wins …without weapons to wrench wings off wins …with no wickedness working a wreck For wills work well with we III Bought brutality breeds bad bosses […]

SAD SIGHTS

Begin …emancipating …gross …gainers …at …roadsides …suffering II The dressing of the nation …determines its addressing in other nations So seeing buttocks turned legs …as burdened hands beg by roadsides, Seeing rotten eyes …turning in eyelids …as hoarse voices sing sad sad tunes …like Job at do or die jobs Being given notes that read […]

PRAYERS ON GODS

We are where we are Because long ago, guardian spirits went to visit the Gods …on our behalf …and came back to a locked door …with alien chants at their hunt Ib Fearing demons had besieged their people …they called on the Gods to save the people …but the people called the Gods Satan …and […]

LECTURERS, NOT GODS

Ia Like staircases …they carry hearts with minds …to the rooms of self realization: Lecturers Poor staircases make climbers dizzy …and pose the danger of caving in …killing the climbed …bruising their grounds Ib Lecturers are neither gods nor lions …who order and bellow Feeling like the only keys to bright Zions Any – …swimming […]

SWEAT BEFORE SHINE

4 Claps rap to trap warm wraps …for your presence …a celebration for your living …at your every appearance Many going miles to grow suns …on your face Your mood being the hood …of all seeing your good Slaps checking out craps walking …in maps of your enemies Yes, you’re the sun at its peak […]

THE PERFECT GARDEN

It looks surreal The bright colours …of the flowers …and beautiful butterflies …are oh so real From afar …planting jealousies …until eyes travel close II There are visible spiders …hitherto unseen Waiting to hunt the dancing butterflies …which also busily steal …the priced nectar of the flowers Alien birds hide within …pecking on the flowers […]

TAKE ME TO YOUR HEART

Bags are packed …with clothes of patience …undies of curiosity …shoes of excitement …armour of compromise Waiting for your cue …to board the vehicle leading …to the airport …for the begining of our journey to your heart II I am ready to embark …even if a dog with rabies searches through a scare bark I […]

FEAR STAINED

Our yearning calls for explorations pelagic As fear hangs surrealism on a wagic …stick while we hope for magic …fearing we’ll turn tragic So we pray for magic to fix the tragic and dispose of the wagic When the inevitable swoops like a hawk Always asking why we can’t freeze …the now into a static […]

ACCUSATIONS

Check the neck you peck to wreck …with your beaky specks …you sheck looking like a steck …needing a wash in a beck II Throw the stone …if the mistake bone …is not a clone …inherited by every gene …from the first homo sapien III Abuse the accused with the excuse of fallible confusion But […]

KƆNTUA

A twisted tale stales history Fuelling the dreadful victory …of a storyless country II A passionate need for relevance …fruits no reverence …even eloquence can smoothen not that arrogance III For hard earned glories …bubble into no sorries …no matter the lorries …of lies driven on the stories IV In competitions …the first is named […]

LET’S TURN SAVAGES

We have been on this battlefield …for too long Enduring torture through fears …and hurts and pain …tasting shameful bites of sand Today let’s turn savages II Stone down your doubts …as David stoned down Goliath …and walk into the gate of confidence …for a fresh bath of your spirit …and a fill of can-do […]

AUTOMATIC SCANNERS

They move They move like automatic scanners …to register the front …and especially the back No matter the hard hitting bricks …that prick their dicks …to prompt a trick They can’t help it Such is their wiring II Let the goddess of beauty be in arms …a demonic spirit …dressed in dying plantain leaves …in […]

I AM ERICA

I Am Erica Snow blissed but cold hissed …divided into different earth in the nick of an unpick II I Am Erica Wearing fate of hate …in an own turning alien bait After greedy passersby …uprooted other rooted …into savage replants …knowing not I am compatible …with their fertility Time is belling the shift of […]

TRAUMA

Trauma is like stroke It strikes at once …but heals …if it will …like a star famished conceited bride walking down the aisle Hanging breaths with the rope of anxiety II A brush of hardwork A clash of fear A rush of impatience A flush of hope A gush of anticipation A hush of pessimism […]

SAND IN EYES

Sometimes truth lies in deep forests of lies …calling great hunters …for their find Praying voices of lions of deception …scare not rightful hands …in their fetch II Sometimes truth hovers …around lies like a bothersome fly …wishing to be seen or heard …but mostly drown in power frowns As raindrops drown in rivers III […]

AN INKY WARRIOR AT REST (For Toni Morrison)

When a big tree with strong branches …and healthy leaves …falls The earth shakes in fear and sadness …not because of the weight and bruise But in mourning for the many beaks …the many mouths …the many buttocks Who have been stripped off their benefactor …with all her healing touches The more we wail …the […]

IF YOU WANT ME

There are many shiny glasses …showing me in cool classes Acting editors of my reality Ably aided by clothes of my smiles But be not fooled II I am a garden …a garden with varying tenders …who left dents …which their followers rent to further dent …and soon register their can’ts …leaving close watchers with […]

TASTE A SINGLE 30

Immaturity is poison …to reason Inexperience is an axe …which cuts the tree called Relax …forcing a fretting failing tax So greens must grow their buds into queens …to up their knowledge genes …in order to clear their eyes to see …differences between noble frees …and unworthy fleas …in the garden of choice After training […]

THE HELL FIRES OF RELIGION

There was a lamp …which was made to stamp …the moral directions of man It worked well under a ban II This lamp gained roots …after tasting negative boots And upgraded into electricity …seeking to brighten many a city …but now sells them pity …through flawed supremacentric equity III It drains, from heads, waters of […]

WHEN A TRACTOR KNOCKS OUT YOUR FACTOR

Sometimes there are many winds …that pluck all our leaves of confidence …break the branches of our support …and leave us empty of pride At the centre stage of the sun II Sometimes …things that hit us …can take the sound …out of the throat of a singer …and drain all words …out of the […]

ORGAS MIC
