DIRTY POLITICS

Dirty rumours are now marrying horrible allegations
Forcing elites to take stands
…in supporting filth
Thinking their action a tug of war
As our younger ones hold on to their ropes in support
Aren’t you ashamed? Aren’t you all ashamed of this dirty politics?

II
You’re all wearing rags of shame beneath your branded clothes!
You’re all monsters in your selective games
…when the sun goes to sleep
…hiding the moon with your power clouds!
You all have topics which force you to cough
…in guilt, at their mention!
Yes, you all have smells you hide with your expensive lavenders!
Why publicize them to pollute our young
As if watching your foul steps is not enough?
I am ashamed!
So ashamed of you!
And so should you if conscience is part of your created science!

III
Politics shouldn’t be rated eighteen
For there is no remote to put life off
…for our children’s safety!
Politics shouldn’t be this dirty!
For one represents a nation
And a nation defines one
Politics shouldn’t be this shameful!
It embodies patriotism
And defines us as a people
Yet you shred respect with your lies
Beat decorum to death with your actions
Shoot intelligence to death with your attitudes
Decapitate growth with your lies and craze
And enthroned corruption with your greed
This is shameful!
So very shameful!
And you should feel it most in your top seats!

IV
It is about time you held your steers and turn to safety!
It’s about time you stopped your madness and return to sanity!
It’s about time you grew out of your cruel mindsets!
We pushed you up to work us up
And not to drain us down gutters
With your shameful outbursts
…and horrific accusations!
And oh ye actors and singers
…left unemployed by the near death of our movie industry
…or pushed down by fierce competitions in the music industry
If you’ve now turned white elephants
Shut up and be decoration for floating tourists
Don’t act out by spilling unnecessary garbage
None has voted on such scripts
…to make you act to show us to the world as a disgrace!
By all means do you
Just don’t do all of us in to be thrown in the world’s garbage!

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. :)

So so so embarrassing and shameful!
Excellent work!
I going further and deeper into the Assin Asempanaye forest where I can just hide my shame. Like seriously? And these are supposed to be the cultural icons and custodians of the political economy? aaah!
