NSAKO’S EGO

/
Kojo Nsako lived like an angry king in his house
Always tormenting his spouse
Asking her to leave his house
If she felt like a mouse in place of his spouse
Maame Adobea bore it all
And lived humbly through many a roaring call

//
He did as he pleased and cheated
He shouted as he wanted and defeated
…her
Many were those who asked her to, well, bear
Since he had the money to spare

///
Years traveled
His bundles shriveled
…into coins
Those coins made such noise to hurt her loins
But Maame Adobea forced her joints
To earn her haunting spousal points

////
Days finished the coins in his pocket
And forces Maame Adobea to be his money socket
Still Kojo Nsako maintained his brutality
Thinking he held her by his high ego mentality
That was when things changed
Like a sky becoming earth
He was called out on his deranged by his estranged
As she did her hurt sword unsheath

/////
That is why Kojo Nsako has brought her to the elders
Calling himself the many builders
…of her life
Without mentioning a strife
Pompously raising his shoulders like a king winning a war
But her soft and cold voice now cuts into his core

//////
“Real men are not angry lions
Roaring in their houses
…and scaring their spouses
These days I’ve traveled my optional Zions
You’ll live like I used to
Or leave like your rants used to
…demand
This is my command”

///////
The elders know she tells the truth
Because all know Kojo is uncouth
A look at the elders and he knew
His chances are few
Nsako’s jaw drops
The fruits in his fury turned useless crops
The daunting cell of his impending hell
…yells to his new position sell
Just imagine the many flies which thronged to be able to tell

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. :)

Only that today I nearly slapped a half Ghanaian Nigerien Assin Asempanaye boy who asked Kwaku John if I am a Ghanaian? Charlie I never knew I could be like that.
Anyway ADOBEA I receive your oil in Jesus Christ’s name!
