MEN AND ANTICS

If my shiny lips rub on your libidoMan so loose, check yourselfIf my bouncy breasts wake your monstersMan so fickle, hold yourselfIf my wriggling buttocks crack your jackMan so indiscipline, punish yourself If my short skirt forces you to sinI have no electric wire attached to youNeither am I a socket with a gun to […]

HAJIA

Hajia, when a Muslim man tells you he’d marry multiple wivesBelieve himLive not in the hope of a bluff to feel the tips of jealous knivesWhen his promises rain to your perfect love dim Hajia, he told you no lieHe spoke from the prideful praise of his fatherHaving lived through the quiet storms of his […]

THE TULIP

The Tulip now lies breathlessBeing suffocated by taunting TalibansWhose thinking wheels are stopped in archaic timesAnd are now chopping civilization on ignorant boardsTo lock women into prisons of themselvesOnly to throw those keys into the pockets of their unfit men IIThe Oak takes an esteem fallBiden being pushed into the fires of fitness…as to whether […]

WHEN A WOMAN CLIMBS HIGH

When a woman climbs highShe sees the shape of creationAnd uproots its destructive lieWhich can cause hurts and pains and drains in her nation IIWhen a woman climbs highShe sees the troubles in the future of manAnd stops many a man cryBy putting on temptation an absolute ban IIIWhen a woman climbs highShe gets to […]

THE MALE CROWN

Abayatei whipped my buttocksSaying I did not fasten my door with locksAfter I agreed to dance to the tunes of his passionAnd he caught me in a flirting actionHe stretched his tail and stressed my failure…saying I wanted to taint his tenureBut the beatings turned into a heatingAnd the heating turned into a coitingOne his […]

INCINERATIONS

It is the licking of a small sparkWhich ate some best farms of some greedy spiders…in moral tales into soot blackSo I deal no rumour riders IIAma Antwiwaa has diedThat beautiful damsel with that sweet smileShe has really diedWith her fashion talent making many cry in painShe has died in her twenties’ greatMaking many hate […]

DEAR WHITEMAN

I watch her puff…in a manner so toughAnd see her desire…which did naught to retireBut her words were no bluffAs she did speak without a cough II“There are many mangoes on this life tree…you can pluckI am a huge tree which comes with a fee…one you can’t duckSo look and salivate…but don’t aim to cultivate…a […]

THE DESPICABLE

He claims women are nothing without husbandsHe whose looks forces him to buy love…on illiteracy marketsTrapping him in the deceit of fools IIHe claims women are nothing without childrenHe whose children could be impositions…borne out of convenience of a cunningOr worst, traps of his rape entrapment…seeing as he believes every woman’s smile…is a coitus invitation […]

RIGHT IN FRONT

Some say we walk from the back…before getting to the frontBut we have seen women as shadows…for far too long III can jubilate us as mates of conductorsBut won’t go overboardBecause until a capable she gets into the driver’s seat…and deliversNothing changesUsing them as baits for a harvest of votes…is an affront in realistic thoughts […]

THE CROWN OF RAPE

Rape scraped the dignity of Yaaba And crowned Akowia King in Kokoraba Because the elders claimed succulent fruits must cover themselves …to stop passersby from easy plucking Agyawaadwo! II She was like a breath of fresh air Her smooth black skin always shining like dawn of dark She was like a confident lioness …fierce, sassy, […]

I WORRY FOR HER

He told me He told me she pushed him down a cliff He did tell me He did tell me she squashed all his hopes …and rendered him homeless in his own home Throwing out his soul …and shattering his spirit Always leaving him an empty barrel …deserted by all he held dear So he […]

GIVE ME CUSTODY! GIVE ME CUSTODY!

You were raised a lazy god of the home – …your hands to never touch a diaper …your laps to never host a child …your ears to never stand a cry …your palms to never knead dough Yet you stand in front of a judge …after collapsing your home …to scream GIVE ME CUSTODY! GIVE […]
