Gluttons on tables of kings
Make absurd royal words meaningful to their kits and kins
And like dogs, go a long way to push their slings
Just to stay and grow more chins

And so truth becomes their foe
Knowledge is pushed in waters below
Facts are hidden by a conscienceless big toe
Fairness is shot by their arrow and bow

They stay on
Preying on manipulation’s con
And are relied upon
As the protector of corruption’s don

But a day will come when their time will expire
A day will come when their roles will expire
And they will find they saved nothing to retire
And will live in painful perspiration forever wearing regret’s attire

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. :)
