Treasure Island

Edward Kofi Louis

(13th October 1961 / Accra, GHANA)

Life Is Like The Butterfly

Study the butterfly and you will understand my mind!
Viewing and inspiring;
In works! !
With all manners of sickness around us today.

Lust, lost!
Sleeping with another man's wife;
But, life is like the butterfly.

Cheat, heat, eat!
Steadily! !
And like the occupants in your neighbourhood.

To bury my sorrows in pain;
But, this approaching train is not the last train.

Rain, Terrain!
But, stainless with the muse of love.

Salt, saltiness!
You are the light of the world;
Very nice and neat with the muse of love.

Study the butterfly! !
And, you will understand my muse;
Sweet and soft with the muse of care.

To find the canal and,
To solve the puzzle;
Tender and peacefully with the muse of unity.

Study the butterfly to know my ways;
With the sweet muse of love.

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 »
