AROUND LONG BREAKFAST TABLES

Around long breakfast tables
Where connections are cables
…calling to be brought to existence
Fear, pride and shyness are the only scissors
Cutting their birth between beings
Jaws work in their own rhythms
Throats wait their swallowing turns
…chew, swallow, chew, swallow

II
Here, colour is just a painting
…which every difference hosts
Here
Class can only come from the mouth of the crass
…whose ass needs to be harassed
Here
…every structure is nature
…appreciated and loved
Chew, swallow, talk, smile
Chew, swallow, talk, laugh

III
If all days were like this in Victoria University
And every human runs this routine
Emerging from our safe places
…to meet, greet
…talk to defeat the fleet of negative lables
Love will turn staple cables of food for our abilities
…and the earth will call us dependables
…passing through its territory

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. :)
