SOME SIKAMAN LOCAL CELEBRITIES

Some SIKAMAN local celebrities are like fowls
Who transform into peacocks
Only to insult and shame themselves with their processes
Soiling screens with their self-degrading aura

II
Some Sikaman local celebrities are like dogs
Who bark and bark and bark at eachother
…just for attention
Spitting and vomiting secrets
…to court the horrors of the populace
When they bite,
…bad blood rain like scattered rivers
Causing shivers

III
Some local Sikaman celebrities are like Bush guinea fowls
They chirp to disturb for a wake
Only to tell tales of stolen men and women
While acting like pigs in stinking dirt
Attracting hoots and likes and loves and cares
…from bored and interested trouble lovers

IV
Some local Sikaman celebrities are like snakes
They befriend to begrudge to out to destroy
Only to jubilate at a fall they’ve caused
Thinking themselves bigger than others
Even as they’re dressed in disgust

V
Some local Sikaman celebrities are like worms
They always move in the moisture of scandals
Drapped in the shamelessness of their attitudes
…while hoarding pain in their hearts
I bet only their beds and chamber audiences
…know the real emotions they pour in their privacy

VI
And we sit to watch as real celebrities are abandoned
For not having scandals to share
We sit to jubilate as the system breeds them in thousands
Forgetting those our camera lenses fall on
Are the very sculptors of our future
We sit and promote their immortalities and politics of insults
Thinking their rot shines for our bought
Our interest is what produces the eggs for their multiplication
And we’ll pay for it
…we’ll so pay for it
In the futures of our young

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. :)
