EVIL WATCHERS

They all saw the hawk
Swooping and gaging the chick
But they all connived to gawk
As the hawk caught the chick

II
They then turned around to hypocritically moan
Showing their faces to the hen
When they saw how it, with its cock, mourn
Claiming they feared the hawk’s den

IIb
Are hawks lions?

III
I saw the hawk later
Dressed like a dove
But who can be blind to its stature
If not aiders from among the many a helping dove?

IV
Yet they all act innocent
Thinking they fool the tortured fowls
They sure act complacent
Until their safety shook from crowing which birthed howls

IVb
Who cares about your sleep
When hearts from your tortures weep?

V
Yadayadayada yei!
Gagagagagaga woi!
Gela gela gela way
Your yada sways not!
Your gaga hits not!

Vb
None will sleep if you sit for a small flame
…to turn into a mighty conflagration
We will all suffer same
Be it in chaos or peace in the nation

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. :)
