IN THE SKIES OF THE UNKNOWNING

Ekuba’s mouth was busy
“A woman who disrespects an ex is like a spoilt mop
Which was used to clean him up
A man who has seen your nakedness deserves the highest respect
As for me, I will honour my man
Current or ex as God instructed”

II
I looked on like a non verbal toddler whose words have been hidden by her God
As she showcased her thoughts in glasses of naivety
That was thirty six moons ago
After Araba was seen in public
Trading insults with her ex husband
Who had refused to care for their three seeds

III
Some noise took me outside today
I met Ekuba with her ex boyfriend
She holding him by the collar
She was raining invectives on him
“Are you a man?
A man who cheats like a goat
You’re an irresponsible he-goat
Foolish man
Stupid man
A gutter kind of man
If men were fishes
You’d have been a spoilt Keta School Boy
You’re demented
Your langa langa is as small as okro
Yet you’re not ashamed to parade it to many girls
Who laugh after your showless shows”

IV
I was confused
If I remember correctly
Araba only mentioned her ex husband was irresponsible
And must not be classified among men
…for a valid reason
Ekuba’s judgment then, sounded like a Queen Solomon at her highest peak
What has changed for a man who has no ties with her
To receive this public showdown of shame?
I guess inexperience speaks wisely in safe skies
Only for experience to slap it to fall on land in a broken state
I bet, on its head
Transforming the sane into an insane beast
Who forgets all past counsel
And acts like a tantrumed tool
…scattering dignities long won

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. :)
