Treasure Island

Edward Kofi Louis

(13th October 1961 / Accra, GHANA)

Cole


Cole, cod, do, doe;
A group of gangsters,
Cod, code!
The man pulled the gun at him and,
Snatched his bag.

View, interview!
With the muse of the land,
Full of trouble;
Illegal lust!
Consumed by incessant talk.

Role, broke!
Under it,
With it,
In the land;
With the gangsters.

Lust!
Grinding everything to a halt;
Blame, shame!
Of the picture;
In the land,
And, the man pulled a gun at him.

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
