THE END OF ENVY

Once upon a time, aboa Gyata
Ruled a jungle whose systems to all ɛfata
Though everything was going well, some animals haboured anibere
So they plotted and waited for their emere
All the jealous animals consulted Akura
For ideas to, as it were, overthrow Gyata

II
Akura told them to set the jungle on egya
As that is the only thing that can scare Gyata
All the animals hailed him as nyansafoɔ
Forgetting the plan was like self aborɔ
They did set the jungle on egya
Only to start feeling the heat of the egya before Gyata

III
Even Akura in his ɛbon
Felt the heat and started running from his own safe ɛbon sɛɛ hɔn
But before he could reach safety, he had burnt like kyinkyinga
Before they knew it, all their plans had gyiriga
And they were burnt alive by the unforgiving egya

IV
Gyata saw from afar the fury of the egya
And fled to safety before it reached his ahenfie
But so many innocent animals, who saw the tricks of the jealous and kept mum, lost their efie
So many others died and had no asieɛ
That is the story’s awieɛ

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. :)
