JUST SO YOU KNOW

A bird which loves the sound of its beak
…on a stump
Will always complain when fate changes its stump into a live tree

II
So don’t go asking happenings of day
…from the owl
Don’t go asking the state of roots
…from mushrooms
Don’t go asking how to keep hair
…from a vulture
Please don’t go asking air
…why cotton blows far off its tree
…when it bursts out from its pod
Don’t go searching for ways to stop drumming
…from a dancer
Don’t go asking for opinions of songs written
…from the deaf
Learn to unlearn toxic pointers;
…ignorant chasing
…and horrible mentoring

III
For no mouse will be favored in catdom
No antelope will be worshipped in a lair
No chick can be cared for by a hawk
It is what it is
Fairness needs a sky which tallies its earth
Just so you know

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. :)
