THE HAUNTED CROWN

She has answered the final call
She who used and played us as ball
And mined us to decorate her hall

II
She has answered the final call
She who took and made us look dull
Seeing to brutalities whose benefits made her full

III
She has answered the final call
Taking with her our riches
…and leaving us in old and torn stitches

IV
She has answered the final call
After inheriting and keeping cruelties which saw our fall
Brainwashing our authenticity
…to fuel our calamities

V
She has answered the final call
With her many masks which changed faces to fit her flaws
Even as we felt her gnawing claws

VI
She has answered the final call
Her debts unpaid
Her legacy so stained

VII
She has answered the final call
But we shall persist to resist her leftovers
No matter how they pose to assist us through a dine
In order to take back our shine
Which consists of mines of minerals and years of labour
In order to take back our God carved favour

VIII
She has answered the final call
Let our ancestors call her to book
As we work to retrieve what her stool from us took
Let Asamando recover their blood
As we work our way from this poverty flood
Spirits must summon a spirit
…to answer their summons
She has answered the final call
That draws the lines of battle
Here and hereafter

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. :)
