THE BAD END FORMULA

There were times many a norm today
…could call for society to slay
Now many a past’s ill fitting attitudes
…now bag many bowing gratitudes
It is just like the back rooms
…becoming the front rooms
And birth
…turning into death
It is intriguing!
So so intriguing!

II
Tears of yesteryears
…now bury their fears
Hopelessness of yesteryears
…now steer power with happy cheers!
Those who faced the jeers
Now live, answering to the call of “dears”
It is intriguing!
So so intriguing!

III
How did we get through disgust to these wins?
How do morals power tables from bins?
How does righteousness jump from hateful sins
…to lower raised chins
…right to forcing bright grins?
It is intriguing!
So so intriguing!

IV
All it takes is the romanticization of an ill
To still it to fill its nil
…of righteousness to squash its hateful bill
So let beauty wear the frowned upon
As handsomeness plays its gong
Let the most beloved be crowned by disgust
As the mercifully powerful pitiably showcases that disgust
Tongues will wag
Eyes will raise
Mouths will brag
To bury the disgust
…to faze
It is intriguing!
So so intriguing!

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. :)
