Treasure Island

Edward Kofi Louis

(13th October 1961 / Accra, GHANA)

Potent, Impotent!


Tent, impotent!
Easily identified;
Tent, potent!
Easily noted;
Potent, impotent!
Easily found;
Very fast and free!
With your muse,
And, very sweet and lovely;
But, the answer is in your heart.

The decoration of the tree;
And, of the nature of your muse.
Love!
Identified;
Like cats and rats,
But, the answer is in your heart.
