ROBUST TIME

Time walks in a rush With no ears for stops No eyes to turn back No mouth nor stomach to stop and feed No breath to feel tired let alone pause to rest It sure is the creator’s robot Set like a watch man to impartially measure us What tough scrutiny it gives! Amoafowaa Sefa Cecilia […]

DUNGEONS ON DEATH

WHIPS

Time sits Immortally charming on its throne Wondrous like flower of the holy spirit Tasking suns to open morning gates Caring not for celebrations Mournings Or indifference Nor dawns thrown rudely into the past II Suns advance to bosshood As time progresses Melting the weak to flea for cover Heating the poor to cooking Just […]

ANTI KALEIDOSCOPIC EXISTENCE

There was a time When time rhymed with heartbeats Danced to desires Clapped for exuberance Chatted with life And bonded with hearts Making muscles jump in happiness II There was a time When hearts loved their times Spoke with pride about their times Ruled their time And thought they rocked like gods Hearts; I mean […]

TIME ON WHEELS

I am just a visitor thrown to tour  I want to use patience to view and store The beauties of life and feel its happiness to the core But time’s wheels come to the fore II It runs like hell’s flame is in a craze Leaving me like a hawk in an eagle’s daze On […]

DORMANCY

Yearn and sit On carved horse’s seat And the “n” would flee And show you “year” And the “y” would flee And be replace by “t” For the lonely “r” to call an “s” They will then travel to your eye’s land Pinch and fall like angry rains As they take you back to be […]

WHY I RHYME WITH TIME

Each comes with its own songs And each wants its name among Like a battle where none belongs The songs sing themselves like an odd wrong II Travelling with time, one must mime To hear its sounds so one can rhyme To feel its pulse so one can time And work so right to desist […]

ON TIME’S SLIME

Donkeys are nothing Like monkeys The former walk like heartless robots The latter have options to walk, swing or jump II Cats are no bats The former are forever walking thieves The latter, forever banished livers of daylight Each sect nursing its scandal III Fishes have liberties in seas But know the fact that they […]

A DANCE TO LOVE AND HATE

The same tick tock Which grows the plant Is the same tick tock Which kills the plant   Every leaf, stem and stalk Will dance to the tune It grew to love And learn to detest its hands and discipline   A time for one, Tick tock will pass And will never bother To take […]

HARMFUL JOKES

The centipede coils When the stick pokes The stick wanting to see its length The centipede wanting that in wraps He pokes, It coils, He pokes, She coils The sun watches in anguish Seeing fun flee from their encounter Time laughs at their clumsiness The sun closes its eyes And leaves them to the scare […]

IT IS VANITY UPON VANITY

UNSYMPATHETIC TIME

Tick, tock Tick, tock Time travels like a programmed machine Whose only command is to go forward It does not look side ways, Does not look backward, Does not wait for even a second on anyone, We go at its pace. Time feels no sympathy, Hears no pleas, Cares not a hoot about bribery We […]
