KAWOLA? UBEISON!

‚ÄčEverything atop seems supreme Many pant to climb to mountain tops And jubilate as winners in the end Many eyes look up to the sky in reverence or solicitation Even though legs mate the earth So why do you sleep naked on this Ghanaian floor Regarded as the pauper of the nation? II From Yaa […]
