UNDER THE SOKOTO BRIDGE

“I’ll meet you under the Sokoto Bridge
Through the Akuase Ridge
Bearing a love letter carefully typed by an honoured cartridge
You need to be there if you don’t want to think me in a fridge

II
I hold the ails of my heart
…in the cave of my hat
Ready to turn your cuddling cat
…even if I’ll taste your fiery bat
You surely need to be there
If you want me on no goodbye mat

III
For my love is a die or live
You my revivor
…if I’ll be termed a survivor
So have pity on an empty me
For only you hold the key to my being”

IV
He says “utter nonsense” at the try
After receiving the call
Smiling and glowing
As he turns to his friends to gloat
But he knows well the pain of a chase
And still chooses ridicule
…in answer to her hope for a miracle
I can’t bear to watch this brat!

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. :)
