WHEN NEED CHASES

I live With the body of a lioness But walk At the pace of a snail The earth; a cruel boiling The air; a slapping heat On this road, are monstrous feet And on the sky’s face, is an annoying grin Even the dark seems dangerous As legs with no intent join targeting ones in […]

NHYIRA

Day has broken from the clutches of darkness Aiding eyes, like a pathfinder To see all in clarity If breath stands at post And health is on wealth’s coast I say “anyame mu Nyame” Nhyira nka wo din! II I can see hens leading their chicks And cocks looking for stocks Through the warning of […]

RAIN YOUR FAVOURS

The sky lies emotionless Far from pates of the helpless Who like dead wood, are visibly drowning in seas of sadness I know your heart bleeds for all your seeds Lord of the earth! Rain your favours! II The earth sits hard in a sky battle Uprooting supporting trees Breaking bones of all fallen Whose […]

ASEDA

​ Any comfortable visitor Who fails to thank the landlord Is worse than the worst of sneaking snakes “Otwereduampong!  Ananafo mu Nana! Kokromoti a yensan wo ho mbɔ pɔ” I serve my thanksgiving in the plate of my being II You built these bones as builders use stones You laid these veins as plumbers lay […]

YOUR MAGNANIMITY

Lord God Your fallibility tool in the living Is a great disservice to you Yet magnanimity is one of your gracious parts You sure are the only thumb Without whom no rope can be tied The I am that none is Jehovah! II The crow of a cock in the day Might be complaints but […]

​GOD ON HIS THRONE

We are like trees Problems are like our earth Each can’t be If the earth refuses entry Roots are like our will Meandering through sand Around rocks On worms and running rats Hunting water and food II We know God is at post His all seeing eyes watching his little garden Knowing the roots making […]

SHOW US YOU

The sounds of nature stamps your existence Your bodiless presence calls for some insistence Of evidence of your presence Despite many testimonies of the taste of your essence II You are who you are Though we know not when you were But are dying to share In your kingdom at any fare III We wish […]

GOD (CRAZY STANZAS)

​In the wake of this take Make me windbreaks that will all hurdles absorb Be like the unbreakable bubble surrounding me Even as rains of drains seek all grains of sanes II Ahonu-abobirim! As a mind which descended from the stairs of a sage I lay my body before thy feet Burn the evils in […]

DUMMY CHAT WITH GOD

God Please don’t be bored This chest does many questions hoard It is just time they show on your board II What do you prefer? Hymns like tall airs forcing deep roots to tap And heads of tall grasses to sway? IIb Or praise songs monster-gangster-like With clap like Satanic palms Slapping the cheeks of […]

HE MUST BE A WOMAN (TANKA)

Peace amidst chaos Helpful amidst helplessness Healing in murder Embracing ruthless shooters He must be a good woman II Climbs against advice; He holds hands and drops gently. Bad demonstrations; He protects, love and give all Why is He not a woman? III He acts motherly So He must be a woman Catching all our […]

GOD’S SPECTACLE

Through God’s spectacle There is no human receptacle He needs no oracle To tell Him what happens in His tabernacle He gave us combined chronicle To work with but we are comical Doing opposites and needing a miracle Humans are like pigs and it’s terrible Look, we know our state is curable All we need […]

WHEN GOD LIVED WITH US

Once upon a time, God was with us He pampered and caressed Until humans became one They joined the sinly train And got a disappointing pestle They pounded God with hatred They pounded Him with stealing They put Him in the mortar of sin And pounded him like crazy Until He made the sky He […]
