WONDERS

There are people fishing in the sandThere are people molding in riversThere are people walking in the skyAll bragging about their future achievementsWonders will never end There are people singing with their rearThere are people eating with their hairThere are people thinking with their thighsAll in love with the idea of productivityWonders will never end […]

II The dresses …which will end in messes! The jewelries …which might not taste many Junes before acting jokes! The shoes …which might scream boos in loses which […]

MANY SPICES

Abena Mansa is a great cook It is not that she knows book She knows that tomatoes stand on their feet When pepper stays to beat And salt stops the bragging of onions When it steps into the zone of the house of oil What is good is they all make an army To trash […]

I DON’T WANT TO BE GOD

I don’t want to be God I don’t ever wish to be like God Not even in my dreams do I want to be God Because I know he must be bored With many mouths pointed at him like a warrior with a determined sword His ears must be irritating like going crazy hearing different […]
