THREATS AND FRETS

Once,In a jungle that was fair…and frowned on carnivoresA dog felt insulted after fighting mouse IIHe kept barking and threatening to deal with mouseTo the hearing of allCat, who felt tired of chewing plants…also heard and schemed a perfect plan IIICat caught and ate mouseOne moonless and starless night…managed to leave few of its bones…and […]

SKY’S LESSON

Once upon a time,Sky was slapped by thunder…and laughed at by lightningThe anger of Sky was so severeThat she used clouds to cover herself The clouds stopped her suns and moons from shining…and showed a frown to her earthA frown which made all humans suffer with cold… angry winds and darknessBecause of this,…an eagle lost […]

LOSS

I shot my mirror for showing a horror …in my corridor today Now I miss the beautiful side of me it reported …and carry the stains on me needing cleaning II I threw my machete deep into a river out of anger After it missed some shrubs and thorns …in a desert I’d found myself […]

ANGER

Anger can push you from success town To the broken hut of a ridiculed clown Anger can make you slip from the apex of respect To the stinking feet of disrespect Anger has caused many to fall from the mountain of gain Into the ditch of disdain Fence well your anger …in a barn of […]

HELL’S FURY

As none can chase chastity In a smoking cabaret, So must cabals never chase their hard targets In churches A caboose can be seen like chariots And there would be no hidden caldera To save the day Get a sense of camaraderie to cajole Prides hurt by you For you know not when your hammer […]

TRIGGERS AND FIGURES (TANKA)

Anger lies within Everything God’s breath is in It can be the sun It can also be the rain And can also be the wind II Who stands this fury? The fury of the sun burns That of the rain floods And the fury of wind kills To think they pleasure in calm III All […]

APOPLEXISMS

I  Scared disappointments Stuttering through minds Seeping down like wine Book some appointments And stop the drippings     II Limping lonely loathings Threading in pure hearts  Poisoning with every step and moaning Stay and be dissolved into happy pacts Instead of killing     III Heavy metal of revenge Stop melting into a sharp […]

GOLDEN SILENCE (HAIKU)

I I have really learnt Silence always reigns supreme In madness of chaos II I have really learnt That anger deserts cruelly Joining accusers III I have really learnt Shame gets name in deserted Seats of rude anger IV I have really learnt I am really embracing Silence’s beauty Amoafowaa Sefa Cecilia (c) 2014

THE BEAST IN US (OTTAVA RIMA)

                    I We all know but refuse to acknowledge It hides, calm like a lioness about to hunt, Giving its prey silence to encourage It to draw near for a catch so easily blunt When its growth goes far beyond its storage Its dreadful fumes will […]

IRE-LAND

You took me to the land of ire Where there’s none called sire And made me an ire-nian And a natural believer of “Do What the Romans do When you go to Rome”   I had the eyes which hatred emoted, Hands which easily smote, Mouth which spat and threw fits, Legs which stomped and […]

FITS OF APOPLEXY

The day felt cold My pride felt old My eyes and mind run wild My emotions run wild The beehive was stirred by a stick   I took the wheels without eyes Rejecting all the worried eyes, Met the sun, Which asked why I run I looked but saw not and trashed the sun   […]

TWO IN A CLOTHING?

It is a clothing meant for one It’ll surely tear When we both force in The fault is yours The fault is mine Let’s part on a very mutual ground   Two bulls will certainly lock horns When an interest turns competitive Your view is good and mine is bad My view is good and […]

THE IRRITANT

When I hear the chuckling And sees her mouthy pouting I feel like throwing my fist and giving her a sound beating The irritant!   When I see her dressing And many complementing I feel like throwing my fist and giving her a sound beating This irritant!   When she does her taunting By pulling […]

HIDE UNDER NO THREAT OF BLASPHEMY

They say you are the living God Whose name must start with a capital letter Because you sit in the heavens above And preside over this global earth. They say you created everything The earth, the plants, animals, water etc… And you have so much mercy, your children lack none I will ask then, Why […]

BARBARISM

Barbarism Wearing attractive clothes and enticing beings Barbarism Acting coyly and planting its roots in watery anger Barbarism Embracing the heart and making it feel at home Barbarism Threading slowly and taking over the human Barbarism Showing its powers and eating away the human Barbarism Pushing the soul and killing the mind Barbarism All his […]

THE UGLY TAKER

Our young years, decades ago Saw us scaling the walls, Saw us breaking the sills, Made us break all rules. We plied this route and hid under those bushes We kissed and shivered openly wavering new converts Our cocoon of sleep was never peaceful As it was kept busy even when all rekindle their fatigued […]
