LEAPS AND LEAVES OF (PuzzlePoetry)

In preparing ɛtɔ
Kwansimah knows
…plaintain is one
…ripe plantain is 2
…pepper is 3
…onion is 4
…salt is an optional 5
…palm oil is an optional 6 elevated to the 5th spot, should it be omitted
…groundnuts is an optional 7 elevated to the 6th
…further being promoted to the 5th, should 6th and 7th be redcarded
All others follow in their stead, taking the places of others should their places be made vacant
Ayowa and tapoli, although a force, love their separation afterwards
Marking lines to stand solo in the count
…even in stanzas
If you’re the cook of this dish
Unpuzzle this puzzle knowing
4th as 1st
3rd as 2nd
2nd as 3rd
5th as 4th
1st as 5th
7th as 6th
6th as 7th

Before left which you leaves lived
Green as once as were beginning your
In clowns like crowns but
The to danced winds you their neglecting
…frowns
Bitten were they rotters thinking lived who
…bickering and bitterness on

II
Falling are you now
…of hands the the at wind same
…your made presence dance whose call
Are you of clutching some your to
…glue hopeless like glue
Bind will breathlessness you thinking
…look but forever at into hue your
To going you’re
…others, the like the soon hall rotting
New as watch ones and dance
…of call your care unheeding

III
Not weep but ouch!
The know now cycle you
Come will season when a
…unrhyming the taste pain they falling of
…of hands the same at they’ll winds
…to dance
Be to prepare razed so your off
…tree
Discern to learn a and cycle new
…concern with
…old the for
Reborn be you should
…realm another into

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. :)
