PLIGHT OF THE LAND

PLIGHT OF THE LAND

nn

Again,
the rhymes of the ink got tried
But the mics got hired
And so the rhythm could not sound right
I gazed well at the skies-
Counting with the sharpness of my sight,
the stars spread on the white clothe,
Only to be left in awe how the dark maiden lied in there-
Hm

ACCRA

From the hands of the priest,
fell on the skin of the leopard the cowries.
The vision of the battle of supremacy-
preceeded the strength of the mind,
And then blood watered the plants that fed us-
The skulls measured to full with the liquor of blood-
Enjoyed on the seat of the golden soil

14
The harmony that clouded peace only existed at the stage of exploitation,
Blood sat amongst the egregious cult of personalities-
and smiled with an evil silver lining
Drinking from the cup of betrayal

12

Hope still brewed itself though,
when the busy colorful insects set up a mixture of loud- and pleasant sounds,
The trees by the clean rivulet,
Told the story of a certain continent-

bbb
That had its inhabitants walk on money in the soil-
The tree still spoke of its bark healing the nemesis of ill health
But there was enough silence-

f
That no soul responded to its conversation,
This star wriths for change into the primeval age,
Who will pay heed?
