WHY GYATA HUNTS HUMANS

Once upon a time, aboa Agyinamoa
Lived with Gyata under the same roof in Koramoa
They were the loved pets of a woman
And did everything to please her


II
One day, Agyinamoa saw Gyata
…devouring one of human’s nguan
He went straight to her and reported
The humans were livid because their nguan kept getting missing

III
The humans chased Gyata into nwuramu
And told him if he dares step foot in their fie
They would kill him
And so Gyata, with sadness, fled into the nwuramu

IV
But before then, Gyata saw Agyinamoa
And told him “Aboa Agyinamoa eiii
…we are one in our savagery
Time will expose you one day”

V
Time did show that Agyinamoa
…fed on nkura
But humans did not bother to punish it
Because to them, nkura were no animals to care about

VI
Until cats started stealing their nam
They were angry that cats will steal their nam
But still failed to punish him
…because of the cuddling cat offered
They covered its savagery and theft with the excuse that they could safely protect their meat
To this day, Gyata is shocked that man protected Agyinamoa
…and treated it like a beast
That is why Gyata hunts man in their habitat

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. :)
