CUGRIOUSDH

If a word hosts rubbish and filth
And has itself infused in 1, 2, 3, 4 with every syllable it hosts
In an after after arrangement
Then meaning calls your effort to be
In this here puzzle which seeks you to make
…perfect sense

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. :)
