WE AREN’T ANGRY ENOUGH

We aren’t angry enough
Like a wind on a sea which howls in the rough
We aren’t angry enough
To change our beings and to demand our growth
We aren’t angry enough
To seek returns from pleaders who turn leachers
We aren’t angry enough
We so aren’t angry enough

II
When our anger turns into fury
And our fury seeks its hurry
We will change our forms to blow storms
To break the deadly systems
…and grow better ones
For our storms to form to force development to conform
We will need self reforms
And act guard dogs around our treasures
None would be allowed to steal and feel praise worthy of fame
None would be allowed to be a nepot
And be at our leadership depot
None would be allowed to let in thieves
…through our auditing sieves
None would be allowed to play dirty politics
…with our coffers as tricks
None would be allowed to kill our national soul
Just to feed few families whole
For our storms will do the reforms

III
If we get angry enough
Those who kill to fill their lies!
Those who steal to feed their fies!
Those who chew and blow on sores!
Would be made to face the laws
If we’re angry enough
Those who bait to stake our state
Those who open our gates of fate
…to let in mates who loot to hit our pate
Will be easily driven out
If we get angry enough
If we really get angry enough
We’ll create blocks to fence our lot
And put locks on our treasure plot
…to let the real power
…oooh to let real and true powers
…rule

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. :)

Very apt, Mum CπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎ
Oh yes, we aren’t angry enough
To show the side of us that’s rough,
So the top thieves have it smooth
To use the law to ease and soothe
Four more to do more greed work
Even when we all know its a murk
Still, we aren’t angry to spill hot magma
And show how we can’t take this dogma
Of legal entitlement to our futures today.
