THE TAILS YOU CARRY

Like feathers, some tails
…scratch off itches
Like dogs, some tails
…act like bitches
Like white elephants, some tails
…just add to weight
And like traps, some tails
…act many a bait
So watch them
…the tails you carry

II
No good tail
…scratches to leave sores
No good tail
…hits to turn bores
No good tail
…wags to turn lured with no sure cures
No good tail
…sheds to give chores
So watch them
…the tails you carry

III
For your tail can be used to pull you down
…from your success top
Strands of your tail can be used to pin you down
…by an investigative cop
Same tail can let you down
…as a town flop
You do know your tail can strip you in town
…as a shame stop
So watch them
…those tails you carry

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. :)
