They were in a convention, All words were in a convention I stood and watched to see if I could some information fetch Then I realized they were in search, In search of a leader, a leader to rule All the words went bazaar Me insisted the leadership must be his title No shouted that he fits the mantle Yes claimed positivity exudes […]
TEARS FROM WITHIN
She pants and frets, Investigates his authenticity and gets Nervous, sees a little bad air hovering and runs like a scared little pet She settles in her cocoon of darkness, ignoring the many bets On her, then tries to forget But the scorned man calls her a man eater A man eater who is not a good beater A man eater […]
A TRIBUTE TO MADIBA
When there was the struggle And many stayed away from the trouble You stood and was thrown in the can For not being to injustice, a fan. Yes, in the can, From where many a-nothings run, You stood tall And took the fall Rising from beneath the dirt and heeding to the call Of change How strange! That you changed the nature of all the addictive […]
Dark shadows! Painy-moany soul! Cracky heart of pain and sorrow Fermented with thousands of years of dope. Walking corpse! Unyielding strife! Honey and love are but a wish. Cloudy doom! Unbearable boom! Bottled flower of never bloom! Yielding bride without a groom. Serpents tongues of goody sweepy broom, Grovel on the moon Cry […]
GHANAIAN? PLEASE GIVE ME A MOMENT.
Have we ever wondered how the Ghanaian environment will be without the spirit of throwing dirt indiscriminately around? Have we ever wondered how beautiful our motherland will be without shameless mouths which spit at will? Have we ever thought of the good air we will breathe if we stopped defecating and choking gutters with polythene […]
LET IT BE MINE; THE CHOICES.
Let me Let me breathe No matter what aims to travel into me Let me Let me breathe For this breathe is priceless but free Let me Let me breathe ‘Cos the era is straining Even part of the nose of the earth is being sealed Suffocating the poor carrier of existence Who tolerates the […]
DEATH TO COURT
Fire of kismet Mountable wall of no return Icy hands that freeze to defrost unwanted Barrier to the barriers of top Beggar of many’s hate Teeth like metals that do not tire chewing Throat as hollow as the vastest ocean Swallowing the worlds’ treasures without clemency Happy man eater Courageous breath burglar Appear! Appear in […]
LET’S GET NAKED
I want to be nude, I want to be stark raving naked with you. I want our faces to show, I want us to show our faces to the whole flora and fauna Without expensive masks of discomfort. I don’t want us to hide behind un-figurable countenance While we scream to hide torturous voodoos of […]
BLACKIES AND BROWNIES’ COUP
Come together ye black velvets Come together all ye brownies of saints And stage a coup; A coup of freedom of thoughts and behaviours of hate Equip yourselves with powerful guns; Guns loaded with convincing word bullets Learn to be perfect Be perfect for the shooting ahead Learn to fight, fight for the extinction of […]
There is a gathering A happy gathering of mockers A happy gathering of the affluent Under the bright moon with the soft flattering air. In their midst is a borne fire Covered with wires holding hands and embracing the heat. On this struggling wire lies the meat praying to be free of pain. The meat […]
THE AFRICAN TOO RIGHTEOUS?
There are questions I really ask myself when I see and hear certain things about my continent. Things like horrible cultural practices, poor sanitation, lack of security, corrupt leaders, lackadaisical government workers, internet fraudsters but to mention a few. The questions are: Why are we not there yet? I mean at the top, […]
CAN AFRI? QUESTIONS OF A TODDLER
Must we aim to please others but not ourselves? Must we aim for the meat without hunting for games? Must our skin reflect our thoughts? Dark is doom, is that it? Are the naturals we see turning our environment into a jungle? Yes, imitation has landed some of ours in the back But what happened […]

Shed The Worry
If you woke up today thinking “what a mess my life is in” please take a deep breath and relax. At least you are alive, you can read this, you can understand. I tell you that there are many people who can’t read this and will give anything to be in your shoes today, even […]
When Will We ‘Arrive’ Africa!
Most of us make many noises about not being treated fairly; I know I am part of those noise makers. Most of us claim our society is not conducive for living. We claim the streams’ water kill faster than malaria; and I know that is what fed our grandparents but some lived to over 100 years. […]
