A SAGE’S STAGE

When scissors get lost in the jungle
Naked molerats don’t bother to speak
And so does the vulture
In the same way
When a mouse gets lost
…in a fair and just jungle
All self respecting cats, lions
…and their carnivorous others
Who have nothing objective to say
Must refrain from making as much a sound

II
For in the moment of tension
A little meow creates misconceptions
A little bark horns unfair justification
A yawning roar
…spells insensitivity
Suspicion smells on any action taken
…in heightened tempers

III
It takes a sage to know the best stage
To act in a family shamed by their own
For that is the right time to spot fools
Use them as tools
…to seek justice for the aggrieved

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. :)
