THE BAD HIGH SCHOOL

All venture high schools
…with tertiary or a universal goal in mind
It is a climb whose turn takes the whipping of a soul
Used-to-taste, unmaking itself is like skins in a knife peel
Blood differ
…so check yours before pushing it into a suffering
…of poisonous suffocation
Drugs brag their highs and hide their cracks
…to drag the deceived
…to its hottest hell
Hot headed human in horrid haunts,
…hault not its hitting hymns
…in a blending join

II
Not only can it catch and chew off your sanity
…as hawks do chicks
It can harm your humanity
And like inhumane pimps
…send your legs and hands on errands
…which will drown you in embarrassing embers
…when it takes over your needs
Oh drugs brag their highs and hide their cracks
…to drag the deceived
…to its hottest hell
Why will you want to join its fearsome ride?

III
I can point out Andam
…who now answers to Abɔdam
I can show you Kaafi
…whose name has changed to Ɛwi
I can march you to Nsawam
…to see the naughty Adam
…confined for his awam
…in trying to feed his drug needs
Once addicted,
…it becomes a brobdingnagian burden
…almost impossible to fight
I confidently tell you that
…drugs brag their highs and hide their cracks
…to drag the deceived
…to its hottest hell

IV
So
…why
…try
…to toe its line?
Why
…cry
…to join its quarry?
Know ye not a blast
…can break your dreams into tiny pieces?
Know ye not it can drag you
…to its hottest hell
…and throw you out like an empty shell?
Do stitch your life
…to save your nine
…even if you’re a cat
…with blessed lives of nine
