CORONA THE LECTURER’S LECTURER

Corona has now turned lecturer
…schooling lecturers and dragging their competencies
…through internet mud
Forcing their cries to be heard all through nations
As bewildered children listen to watch
…comedies with some horrifying legs in the air

II
Now carry-me-at-your-back
…will be difficult for some
Let-me-parachute-you-to-the-limelight
…will be a thing seen for what they are
…intellectually dishonest intellectuals
All thanks to Corona
…the lecturer’s lecturer

III
Corona is now holding a whip
Driving senseless those who have failed to themselves equip
Now Corona is holding fast a register
…marking out those who can’t administer
How sinister!
Now Corona is whipping the tails of power
…as knowledge bosses stoop in the lower
Corona
…the lecturer’s lecturer!

IV
I hope their schooling ends in great graduation
So they can maintain their shoulder-raised adoration
I hope their graduation will be sans arrogance
…in some
For this must be a lesson and a blessing
Not a lesson for horrid lessons
…on struggling students

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. :)
