THE HURTING PUZZLE

You cunning hcterw!
You angry kcirp!
You swiny retsnom!
You worn out gip!
You cut her esool
Now she’ll suck you yrd

II
You used her emit
And flogged to lock her secnahc
You blocked her kcul
After breaking her sesnefed
You swiped her naelc
And made her nael
Parading her like a ekoj
In front of an amused ecneidua
You now have stug
To crawl back to reh?
I’m enjoying watching her kill you yhs

III
She says your thing couldn’t give any msagro
She stated your body smells like a knuks
So she tried to you hsaw
…but you felt like a dog
I can see your hteet
…look like the feet of stoggam!
Such tsugsid!
You were a mismanagement she was ginganam
It hurts when insults walked from your rotten htuom
To hurt her edirp
You are now eating your shame eip
As she roasts you oge
…on a painful hsem

IV
For she’s the ssob
You can’t anyhow ssot
For her very ssol
Will be a ssorc
…even on shoulders of NEM
And so will be worse on a mere nam
Too bad the embers spent no emit
…in burning your traeh
She never wavers nor turns after a pukaerb
I can attest to her noitatuper
Nothing will shake her to you ekat
So now go burn on the ekats
…you til
As she walks in the freshness of rehtona

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. :)

Wooooww!!

Mum C, this is so wonderful. I love the style, which encapsulates, blurs, and fogs the poem and its meaning, rendering it seemingly meaningless. This, certainly, is for uncommon skulls because it is seemingly senseless until you ‘look’ deeper, further, and farther.
The piece is not inconsequential and its relevance cannot be underestimated as it discusses a very common canker in an uncommon style.
It’s a great piece.

Kudos!
