THE FARCE OF REVOLUTIONS

Until goats go on floats
…demonstrating against gloats
…of them in full boats
…heading to abattoirs
Peace will act deceased in this world obesed by hatred

II
Until chickens sleep their dawns
…and receive crows from humans
Until horses ride their “owners”
…till the soles of their feet lose their souls
Until trees peel the skins of man
…to boil for the healing of their barks
Until man works as the guard of dogs
…barking to alert them of danger
…hunting to feed their families
…humbling themselves to be ears when need be
Until fishes swim the air
…as men live in seas
…harvested by fishes to be dishes to be relished
Until sheep keep homes
…and barber hairs of humans
…milk their breasts to feed on
Inequalities will rule like they always do

III
Because heads are feet and feet are heads
Because, sɛbi, mouths are anuses and anuses are mouths
Because hearts are genitals and genitals are hearts
Because tongues and teeth are the only real mortal friends
…chewing and eating crimes and covering them up
…with lips as fences
It is now a world where day is night
…and night is day
But all eyes see are fleeting non-existors
All hands rush for
…are unliving paraphernalias
All hearts yearn for are material duplicates
The few who live for beings
…are seen as beans
…needed to be cooked to feed the materially hungry
You can call them protein for the monsters
…who have ruled the world for years
…in their successive successions
And show no signs of vacating their usurped seat
…for Fairness who rightly owns the throne
…with its queen, Peace, to be enthroned

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. :)
