Naana II


Brake, rake!
You acted like the President of the people;
Gap, gape!
But, you acted in a very nagative way today;
Rake, brake!
For, you lost your mind when you saw this young girl;
Rape, gape!
And, what you did to the young girl was exposed to us.
Bray, dray!
So, you have to face the court in this very town;
Lean, learn!
Naana was the name of the young girl you raped;
Sin, sine!
And the court will surely sentence;
Earn, learn!
But, you can learn to overcome everything with the righteous laws.

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 »
