YOU SEE NOW?

Footmats have turned caretakers …holding canes to whip sanes into insanes …for the many years they were stepped on Forcing shouts out of self important stouts Need has flipped it …servants turned leaders …leaders turned servants It sure is very true …that money is no honey when chaos strikes II Mr. Asikumah’s doctorate now decorates […]

THE FUN IN FEAR

Dear God, Beings hide in being Because a sickness has picked our body bricks …as home in its quest to destroy us Sparing few as carriers Pairing pain in others Forcing some prematurely to death’s home And caging the healthy in their homes Odomankomah …since the earth is one of your wombs Please come to […]

ALARMISTS

High voltage …has destroyed many a gadget Too much rains …flood So stop and think before piling sensational information …on existing fears II We can understand your need to lie To help your God, to unbelievers shy But when your lie normalcy defies You’re no better than murderous flies III The world needs positivity …at […]

THE SOLDIERS IN THIS WAR

A battle needs soldiers …soldiers to stand …to understand its tactics through the antics of its opponents …and fight for its win Corona is a battlefield …one whose soldiers hold no arms to kill …but arms of will with quills to heal II Hospitals are now battlefields Doctors and nurses …and janitors as soldiers Fighting […]

THE WORLD WILL HEAL

I know fear now lives in every head like a ruthless master Making a cough enough to bluff the security of safety Making a sneeze freeze hearts of comfort …shattering confidence in the healthy I know just the mere mention of the two out of the three syllabic word – …coro, …makes many scamper for […]

CORONA WONDERS

Corona has corrected many a curse …curing many a con in many a country Clever Corona!

CONFUSION ON FIRE

Desires on fire are required in these dire times …says some churches God is aboard this coroding through a virus deadly …says some churches Let’s wait until pastors depart from their godly parts …and congregation contract horrors through their cons …and birth their scorns II It is finally happening The piety clothes being ripped off […]

PANIC

Pairing pests Preaching people Prolific press Panting plays Who dares to dress a drastic …to turn humans into panic plastics? Corona! II Washing hands Wishing hounds Wasteful haves Wincing hosts Who dares to square an honour …by keeping hands in zipped pockets …squashing handshakes? Corona! III The higher ups are breaking Touring ministers are shaking […]
