THE POMPOUS ADANKO

Once upon a time, aboa Adanko
Lived proud and acted as though the world hosted ɔno ara nko
And so he disrespected Ɔwansan
And refused all admonition of atwesan
Thinking its cuteness above all

B.
He woke up one beautiful day to roam only to find for himself an adukrom
Where he thought was a blessing like Eden trom
And so he played and was humoured by its fɛ
And stayed to enjoy its dɛ
But there was a greater eye which did call

C.
This eye called for an assemblage of an afidie
It caught Adanko and threw him into apinisie
Ɔwansan saw him in the afidie
But remembered his fat ego and constant disrespect in his own fie
And laughed at his fall

D.
It was there that Adanko regretted his suban bɔne
Thinking if he knew Ɔwansan could save him from any owene
He wouldn’t have acted out and offended him with his suban bɔne
But it was too late and the big eye had descended to compound his owene
Taking him alive to his home for a beheading with a knife he deemed so tall
And thoughts of how Nwansan will paint his fall
That ended the tale of the pompous Adanko

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. :)
