ON THE TABLE OF KINGS

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

II
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


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

IV
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. :)
