THE FARCE OF REVOLUTIONS

Until goats go on floats…demonstrating against gloats…of them in full boats…heading to abattoirsPeace will act deceased in this world obesed by hatred IIUntil chickens sleep their dawns…and receive crows from humansUntil horses ride their “owners”…till the soles of their feet lose their soulsUntil trees peel the skins of man…to boil for the healing of their […]

TEARS – For Maame Ama Donkor

Why do some clouds form to fold …only to unfold when told …then sold to the bold to hold in cold …and fall to mould and sold …to the highest bidders? It hurts …when unfairness stars to shadow the fair World! Oh world! Ib I see angry clouds forming on your sky Adding myth pelts […]

POLITICOFAIR

Whiskers on rabbits …feeding fat From juices of ants …who are tasting bats Fair! So fair! II Crumbs of peace …drowning in pieces As tiring muscles …push protruding tummies …on ceremonial trucks Fair! So fair! III Like Oliver Twist …now it is a demanding twist …blood is the more …they need to store their failing […]

UNEQUAL

Water accepts stone Stone spits out water Sand floors them all …no matter how hard they hide That should tell you …your hard might be mad for one …but play for the other II Just as goings and comings …births and deaths …are life’s play things Your anger is someone’s joke Your paralysis is someone’s […]

PITY THEM

It was a sigh that ended in a cry …seeing you recall the bye …of your youth’s fly …in a plane so high …into memories’ tie II Now you face the court of eyes All pupils dilate in your fear Because the clothes of beauty …have fled …leaving the monstrous wrinkles …which hid in wait […]

WORKERS AND PLANNERS

Needs may justify wrongs But wants can’t say same for itself Wants in extreme Suckle from the breast milk of jealousy Which adds nutritious values of witchcraft Which in turn grow monsters of murder *** I need Some great heart may feed my need I want? Then I need hard  work Which may give me […]

UNFAIR JUSTICE

IN THE COURT OF YOUR THOUGHTS

In your court I remain a threat to your fort All my evidence will yield no dividends Because I have been interrogated and tried in the court of your thoughts Yes, tried in absentia What more is there to say?   Send me the the darkest prison Away for the sight of the sun Away […]

ABYSS OF SHAME BY AMOAFOWAA SEFA CECILIA

Life is meaningless The world is merciless Thrashing hands that seek Cutting their fingers and making them meek. Work abounds for the idle in negativity Caging bodies in confined abyss of dismay, Abyss of urine, Abyss of shit, Abyss of dead sperms, Abyss of cramps. I looked beyond that attractive bag Snatched by the old […]
