A BOUNCER’S TALE

Obio Akweley sat and clapped
As Nortey worked and trapped
…her rival
She then chanted “Discipline in revival!”

II
Obio Akweley did the Kpanlogo dance
When Nortey got the chance
…to try Obioma for her fraud
Saying all fraudsters would be caught and tried for their fraud

III
Obio Akweley laughed and puffed
…choked, and with powder, bathed
Because Atta Ayi was caught
…in a nepot’s slot
Obio Akweley never thought her own misdeeds were boiling hot

IV
Until that Sunday
When the sun was having its hot say
And Ablekuma came with a complaint
That Obio Akweley had taken bribe to do him a favour
…and didn’t honour the favour even though he is her neighbor
He was without restraint

V
And so Nortey tried him and her
Found them guilty fair and square
She sat on the ground and like a tantrumed child, cried
As to why her own son should have her tried
She evoked spirits far and wide
But no spirit would take her side
Because her just son was right
…no god did even try to him smite
So she poisoned him, even before her case could end, through his best meal
And took on life imprisonment in a big deal
As her district mourned the great industrious son
Whose mother took his life, because of her bruised pride, in the hot Teshie sun
For doing what is right

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. :)
