THE LAW

The law The law can sore in flaw The law The law can core in lure The law The law can saw in cure The law The law can just be made to be endured But feed a toad too much water …and it’ll vomit II If the law hurts many Bitterness can handcuff it […]

​MURDEROUS DRUMS

Fetch the myth that struck the bamboo And woke the sounds of chaos At a time when sleep is most sweetest In the royal palace “Ama Mpapahene ne fontonfrom retwe kora Wɔ nananom nsamanfo ahenkrom!” II Arrest the mice whose blood lured the teeth of vampires To our Bragoro festival And dug out rich “amoasene” […]

ATTENTION GOD (ETHEREE)

Stored So bored Many hoard Oh Most High God! Life must fun accord Like dust, blend with sand Mouths can no laughter afford Hearts await hideous painful blasts Setting ears, like guards, on watchful gates Please delete danger, make the baits playful Amoafowaa Sefa Cecilia (c) 2015 (Images from Google pics)

A TRAVELLING CURSE

This is a curse I say this slowly I know this is a curse When tortoise flies like an eagle Without any signs of possession Without a cause I know this is a curse *** This is a curse I know this is a curse When dogs act like lions Tearing bodies into pieces While […]

NATURE UNREST

Does nature sleep? I think not What’s with noise in day, Noise during night Volcanoes erupting, Tsunamis pushing water to steal from land Bush fires killing Beings corrupting, Sky depleting, Earth quaking, Day and night meeting? Does nature have a head? Does nature have ears? Does nature have eyes It truly needs to be pitied […]

POOR POOR LAND

The land tries But still cries Blood of purity shouts Anger of truth roars Justice in pain screams High pitched voice of abuse unbearably sounds Feet of lies thump As cheating massacres Tribal unrest turn  chaotic Every face has hidden mask of a lion Who covers the ears of the land? Everyone for himself The […]

CHANGE IN NEGATIVITY

Bang! Bang! Chang! Chang! Kunklong! Kunklong! Splash! Splash! Swish What is there? Water hold drums Food hold bowls Ground sits on the sofa While the table sits crossed legged on the television What is going on? “Things fall apart The centre cannot hold” A look through the windows Humans have developed wings and are flying […]

A CHAOTIC DREAM

I I had a dream A dream with God as Chair Humans screamed their disgust Plants and trees screamed their pain Animals screamed life’s unfairness The earth kept mute II Every stakeholder Looked in earth’s direction And so earth had no choice but to give a speech “I suffer, I give and I take And […]

PEACE WITHOUT, CHAOS WITHIN

I stand on this mountain top Looking at the beautiful terrestrial contours As I smooch the benevolent dew drop   I stand mesmerized by the lands Which comfortably sit in innocence Bearing all barbarisms in its belly and saying nothing to terroristic bands   I stand here Closer to God Asking how she can all […]

NOT-THOUGHTFUL

We lied on same mats Curved in same stance Swam in the same sea To get here   We kicked when we had to Went up and down in exercise In anticipation the world waited To meet us   Now we are here Living in the same era An era we’ve turned game Those with […]

PEACE GOES DERANGED

For a mystic unknown Much hatred is shown For a mythical blessing There are many hate lessons So this one says hurtful things to that one And that one cuts the ear of this one And the brother of this one kills that one What is their aim? To please one who has never been […]

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 […]
