SOCIETAL LIES (Puzzle Poetry)

From Accra to Botwana
Is four stops
Where Congo, Daresalem, and Ethiopia
…lie respectively between
If France, Guyana, Haiti, Ireland and Jakarta
Follow in descending order
And each beginner is your key in exacting codes
…in an all round A to J and A successively
If A is 1 and J is 10 with a chronology of alphabets and numbers in between
In 4, 4, 2, 4, 7, 14, 6 lines respectively in first stanza
7, 6, 7, 4, 6, 3 in the second stanza
5, 5, 8, 6, 7, 9, 9, 9, 10, 5, 10 in the third stanza
And a fresh beginner for each stanza
If a lost number grants its next a slot
Unpuzzle this puzzle

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. :)

Dear Amoafowaa Sefa Cecilia, you make the words dance to perfection. I love the drive and the energy of the words. Our world is mess-up. 2% had 98 per cent of the wealth. Poor man and woman bleed, rich man can’t see. In the USA. All the leaders are rich men and women. They forget the feel of hunger. Forget the chill of cold nights. Outstanding poetry my friend.

Thank you John. The trend of rich getting richer and poor getting poorer is a sad situation all around the globe. I am always of the opinion that until leaders set aside days in months to live as the poorest people under their care, true leadership will never make meaning. The gap is too wide and hungry people who climb the wealthy ladder soon forget where they come from. Let’s pray for change and a better circumstance for our next generation. 🙏💙💙💙

I agree my friend. The same everywhere. We must learn, don’t elect people without concern for the homeless, the hungry and sick. We must listen, carefully. More double-talkers then truth speakers. Our election in the USA. Two double-talkers. My country will fall backwards, not forward. Neither man had know the pain of missing a meal. I agree, need prayers and peaceful gathering for healing and repairing.
