Gold Star - 11,805 Points (13th October 1961 / Accra, GHANA)

Monowi


Monowi, on, moon, win, mono, in, won, no, own;
To criticize!
Purely personal,
And, at loggerhead.

Lust!
No matter how hard the chicken dances,
It would never please the hawk.
Cup, coup!
Installed,
Cop, coup!
Noted,
But, at loggerhead with the controversies.

Life in the town,
With vengeance and hatred!
And, like a stumbling block;
With the muse of the nature of things around.
