LITTLE BY BIGGLE

By all means
Kill the mosquitoes which sing to disrupt the sound of our means
…but get the rats which feed fat on our storage
…without looking into our future’s hunger hostage

II
Yes, by all means
Break the crabs without heads at our shores
But do get the sharks, with minds, killing the purpose of our captains
…before they reach our ships

III
By all means
Let farmers trap the games which feed fat on their crops
But find ways of seizing the elephants who overturn their farms
…to destroy the wholesomeness of the crops

IV
By all means
Let’s seal the little holes in our ceiling
But fix the umbrellas which break our protection
…to force us to drown in the middle of many storms

V
None deserves to be caught in a crime of all
A little fall for our rise is laudable
But huge falls for our flight is imperative
So let the high and mighty know we know
…the many atrocities darkness hide
…to push their flourishing daylight
And we know, the little together with their biggles
…drag us down the gutters of impoverishment
With the latter pushing the former into being
We’re not that gullible

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. :)
