AS YOU WANT IT

A woman is she who wears her crown …as she wants it A woman is she who uses her charm …as she wants it A woman is she who opens up and closes …as she wants it A woman is she who rules and cares …as she wants it So use all you’re given Live […]

WOMAN

If there is any living being …who awes in many a treasure hunt …and miracles in many a strength Woman – …you’re that singular one II If there is any living being …who deserves many a praise …for a generational raise …even through a suppressional chase Woman – …you’re that singular one III If there […]

WOMANOCOOLTASIES

There are many noisy drums humming definitions of women Abena Amoafowaa Jemremedua My ears have turned bigger than that of the biggest elephant Hugging the ground in listening As oceans of chaotic banter battle winds of infuriated ears. Some define a woman as a bottomless hole meant as a collection bowl by Odomankomah Nana Nyame […]

WOMEN OF THE WORLD

BRIDE AND BURDENS

On egos ride Sits pride which is cautioned to hide Like two in one in a stride The groom rides the bride The bride feels dry even on the side II Cleaning to gleaning A leg on a leg Washing to cooking Newspaper blessing eyes Sweeping and weeping Eyes glued on women’s butts parading on […]

BLESS ME WITH SEED (For those in need of blessings of the womb)

There is a farm hidden in me Although sunlight feels not its land And air pumps through thin tubes As rain never get to muddy its ground It is fertile enough to grow II Bless my land with a perfect seed Help it blend in rot to live Help it grow as seed to show […]

WHEN AKOSUA-KUMA CALLS

Even the most disciplined of famished cats Cannot be a meat security Neither can a hungry toothless dog Resist the temptation of licking a fresh bone Like cats, men sit in conundrum When “Akosua-kuma” calls II Let lions roar Signalling their return Into dens they occupy Minds intoxicated by “Akosua-kuma” Will hear them as bells […]

THAT I AM A FEMINIST

MALE MARKS

Cocks have combs Lions have manes Beings have beards Most have marks seen But all have marks unseen And almost all need their “weak” counterparts In order to save themselves from extinction But their strength breeds cruelty In the pots they need to eat None must be silly enough To bite the hands that do […]

Weak? No! Never!

PLEASE WOMEN, MEASURE AND TAKE THE WHEELS

It’s a man’s world It’s indeed a man’s world Although we give them life But let’s face it, We give them the maximum offerings   There are those of us who sell for pleasure Without measure Their treasures   There are those of us who covet Without regret What our peers have, an open secret […]
