WHEN AN ANIMAL IS ABOUT TO DIE

When an animal is about to die
Its voice is heard in many a cry
…with words chanting lies, deciet
…and hoaxes after being decapitated by defeat

II
When a chicken is about to die
It flies here and there
Crying “It’s a lie! It’s a lie!”
Shouting how unfair

III
When an animal is about to die
Many others will hear of it
But even previous cowards with sigh
…after losing their fears of it

IV
So if you thought yourself an hawk
Dear D. T. Red, look into the mirror
And see the many chickens waiting to stock
…your carcass in horror

V
You can work your weight to fall
…in an unknown bush
Where your stench will only call
…on vultures to push
…you into rot

VI
Time really upsets myths parading
…as realities
Delighting scientists working
…with knowing niceties

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. :)
