AUTOMATIC SCANNERS

They move They move like automatic scanners …to register the front …and especially the back No matter the hard hitting bricks …that prick their dicks …to prompt a trick They can’t help it Such is their wiring II Let the goddess of beauty be in arms …a demonic spirit …dressed in dying plantain leaves …in […]

FOR REAL MEN (For men on International Men’s Day)

There is a reason those shoulders were built broad There is a reason those chests are made flat There is a reason strength flows freely in those veins There is a reason many lives live in the balls of your guns Men! Bosoms where many a love begins II No matter how imperative the fetching […]

RULERS

There is a reason Muscles grow on breakable voices There is a reason Chests flatten in hardened choices There is a reason Chins are visited by weeds Which can scare or be trimed to call for care Onyankopon Tweadeampong is never a slack His creations never lack tact II How else would there be hunters […]

WHEN AKOSUA-KUMA CALLS

Even the most disciplined of famished cats Cannot be a meat security Neither can a hungry toothless dog Resist the temptation of licking a fresh bone Like cats, men sit in conundrum When “Akosua-kuma” calls II Let lions roar Signalling their return Into dens they occupy Minds intoxicated by “Akosua-kuma” Will hear them as bells […]

THAT BLOODY HE GOAT

Just a glance At an entrance And it fell into a trance Never asking for a chance To get enchanted Are you a dog on climbing duty? II Agya Waadwo! So I met a goat on heat It failed to bleat And chased on three feet Hoping to me cheat Me, that bloody future meat!!! […]

MAN IS A WELL

Wells are dug from up the pregnant earth Until gravels are thrown out Then frogs flee to croak Whiskers of rats hide to rise In corners marked with axe Strength of muscles show In layered rocks Forcing broadness for better views The beauty of its sweats, colourful Digging continues Until waters fill sacks of life […]

THAT I AM A FEMINIST

That I am a feminist Does not make me a lioness Asking for fairness with mouth Holds no threats of witchcraft Neither does it hold bullets for crucifixion Let alone bombs for company extinction  II I know there are the kinds who want war And house machetes, arrows and spears Bullets and bombs of words  […]

ON THE MARKET (MONORHYME)

An eye flash And I feel like part a star, part trash Eyes are harsh Those who are in a rush And those ready to bash Those needing to stash And those showing their cash Ah! There are those who got missing in a flash My mind gives me a lash Chai! particular hands show […]

MEN IN DYNAMICS

Some men are like cockerels They praise “Your beauty! Kokrokoo kooo” Loving the rays which help them shine But always work for their stomachs only Still wanting coolers to burn their heats When their fires spark II Some men are like parrots Chirping in gossiping Living with no shame Kissing and telling and hurting and […]

ROLLING BACK THE TEARS

I sit in awe My heart is sore My life is not in the fore Everything is a bore   But fingers point at me Ancestral fingers I cannot see Societal fingers with huge eyes glare All saying one thing “Men do not cry”   I have no dime This sharpness in my guts, I […]

MEN WOMEN WITH WINGS SHOULD NEVER GO IN FOR LET ALONE MARRY.

Men women with wings should never go in for: Married men; I don’t need to say much. Extremely jealous men; they’ll embarrass you in places you can never imagine. Men who want you to foot bills during outings, they may never be responsible towards their children. Men who talk nonstop, they’ll never listen to reason. […]
