Treasure Island

Edward Kofi Louis

(13th October 1961 / Accra, GHANA)

Crosswise


Crosswise, cross, is, wise, rose, so, roe, ore, cow, crow, row, rise, rice, woe, woes!
Red mountains,
Blue mountains;
Just in time,
With the muse of your sweet love in this town when, the marriage bells came ringing.

The masses!
They have not changed;
The mnuse of others!
Like the works of a social crusader;
However, the lifestyle in this town has not changed.

Crosswise!
With the muse of your love after your marriage;
but, your lifestyle has still not changed.
The muse of life,
To navigate it!
And, to keep a low profile;
After your marriage.

Rice, rise!
With the muse of your lov ein this town;
After your marriage,
But, your lifestyle is the same as bafore.
Walls! !
With a thin line between them;
Side, guide!
And, to meet up the challenges ahead in this marriage that you have accepted.

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
