BEFORE YOUR SUN SETS

Before your sun sets Be sure to be in lust and in love Be sure to bite the dust and be, in tempers, above II Before your sun sets Be sure to be a sore and be a cure Oh be a bore and a fun III Before your sun sets Be sure to burn […]

CHINA ON GHANA

You court China like blind cockerels Crowing in thanksgiving to quick loans Which leave debts and aid fraud As our seas suffer invasion And our scrupulous watchers lose their lives Amid fraudsters taking bribes From some Chinese crooks! II You court China like naive maidens Croacking to their ingenious industries As most see you as […]

FUNNY FISHES

Stand amidst killer ants …and claim shants …in angry rants Until your shants change to can’ts Then you’ll see the fair turning unfair …in a lesson rare II You swim in sweet waters …and help walking suckers drink you dry When your waters run out And your difference shouts It’s there you’ll know the difference […]

DEALING WITH DRAGS

Greed has somehow met its seed …in a feed that drags its deeds …down Days when deadly docks shipped …and grazed down our bests …without questioning …are growing unwelcome II Days …when pets bet in jets without vets Yet innocents were made wet …with regrets …and frets …and get let into nets …set for them […]

TILL THE EXIT

There were dead men before us Oblivon was a hunter who had all the games of life Not anymore Not in our lives II For our present can be frozen like ice To locomotively flow like rivers On a save-forever realm You think I lie? Google Mugabe Google Maya Angelo Google Atukwei Okai And they […]

A DREAM TO CHERISH

I traveled to a tomorrow I wish for us One far from our back-walking yesterday Misconstrued as today And I see the over-worked heart of my nation Palpitating in prolonged perspiration of the prognosis of corruption Sadness, raining on my prayers II I wish I could make patriotism into a pill And force all to […]

KƆ KƆ HWƐ

We have the stories Which can cure the sorries And grow our glories But we still live in ruin II As we live in the fence of religion Which prevents us from seeing the beauty of hardwork …outside The castles whose stories can rustle hearts And build our economy to a golden height Are fenced […]

THE WAY TO RIGHTNESS

The way to rightness …is full of sharp stones of hurts …thorns of accusations …broken glasses of queerness …sharp nails of castigations …haunting aura of loneliness Its end is hell with fires of unbending tags II It could come with slaps of annoyance …spittle of “the norm” …urine showers of conceited name calling …poverty’s imprisonment […]

LEACHES OF OURSELVES

All that far far call …from our rich filled hall …is what causes our fall …as others stand tall All the come go quality whores …which are rooted at our shores …eating deep into our own talents’ core …is what is giving us incompetent chores II Why a Sikaman boss …is made a horse …ridden […]

THE HORRIBLE WIRING

The trick stands out in our electricity The harm is boldened …in our preferred pharmacy The ligi, with its silent lɔgɔ, shines out …in our religion The cat in our education …only purrs to manipulations The con in our economy acts star …on our impoverished stage The fence in our defence …has insecured securities …who […]

REAL PATRIOTS

Let them come and sow …protected by their arrows in bows Let them call us foes …punching with their mental blows Let them finish and go …calling all to behold in lo Let them laugh as we tirelessly mow …and puff to our succeding’s no II Let them shoot their pricking pos …until their hands […]

FILTH AMBITIOUS

We’re nursing neglect …in a growing grind We’re activating ails …to an attacking action We’re breaking bonds …of a sealed safety We’re losing largely …in a beckoning benefit We’re Frankenstein Monsters! II We eat from the earth …bathing its waters from birth We clothe from its closety-forest …adorning us with their hidden adorables We soothe […]

LIKE YOUR LOVER

When you wake up Owura, …see her like a lover you see hand in hand down the aisle One whose thoughts bubble down your belly – …warmth of promises born and unborn One whose smile gives you the strength – …to sacrifice yourself for her every need One you can hunger – …to satisfy One […]

USE EVERY WILL TO WORK

Use every will to work Frown on all those who shirk Till we all our flaws impeding growth bury We need to be in a fair hurry So our feat will be seen So we’ll get out of this sore hurts we’ve been II Let all who laugh with smiles At our snail pace growth […]

CRY THE VAGINA 0F THE NATION

​YOUR OWN BI YOUR OWN

Birds know they own their nests And love the inn eventhough they know the existence of hunters Bats love their standing trees in the midsts of tree cutters Worms mate the earth in style Even in places pickaxes dig Why won’t our elders say None uses his left hand to point at his father’s house? […]

THE WOMAN I ENVIED

Once in a flowing dress I walked along the sea in duress Hoping the breeze would help caress My soul, and tow the wrecked pain on my mind Then I saw her; A woman of women and men With hair like protective bush Too beautiful with no room for transparency A face like God Looking […]
