THIS IS THE BOTTOM

This is the bottom
Where today’s hustle is the bridge to uncertainties

II
This is the bottom
Where Corona is naught but a sickness of the higher ups –
A tertiary living
Where none thinks of a possible chit
…to reach its secondary
Talk less of its University
So hands touch bodies to call for sales
Mouths call loudly caring not about their showers
Hoping for a turn back or a stop

III
This is the bottom
Where news is shared in its personal dilutions
In an unending broadcast
As radios are only good for music
…for the most
Powering exaggerators and liars
To corrupt the uncaring vulnerable

IV
This is the bottom
Where a fast pace is the language of kaya
And a lackadaisical walking
…calls for curses and or a push
Time is the balm for neck’s rest
And feet’s relaxation, noting this gets you out of trouble

V
This is the bottom
Where thieves are noted by sellers
Whose only warnings are “watch your bags o!”
For hate is for actions
…not beings
Everyone respects the eachother’s hustle

VI
This is the bottom
Where stores are luxuries aspired to
And cars are dreams never to ever come true
Pans and flat wood are but money fetching possessions to some

VII
This is the bottom
Where politics is but a game of big people
Is it a little wonder many sell thumbs for crumbs?
Today is all we know
Tomorrow will be another today all over again

VIII
This is the bottom
Where everyone understands their work language
From phone repairers to truck pushers
None crosses the other to be rude
In this here bottom

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. :)
