Treasure Island

Edward Kofi Louis

(13th October 1961 / Accra, GHANA)

Squeal!


Licking like a cat,
Walking like a robot,
Squeal!
Code 51;
Cooking like a chef,
Singing like a bird,
Barking like a dog!
dancing like a bear,
Working like a wolf!
Sleeping like a horse,
Chewing like a squirrel,
Hissing like a snake,
Drinking like a fool! !
Code 51;
Climbing like a monkey!
Moving like a cow,
Swimming like a duck,
Speaking like a parrot!
Fish and eggs;
Fabric, fabricate!
In the land of your muse;
Fish, dish!
Of the Redman,
Of the Blackman,
Of the Whiteman,
But, pay attention to yourself and,
Put on a positive character.

Poem of the Day

poet Sidney Lanier

Once, at night, in the manor wood
My Love and I long silent stood,
Amazed that any heavens could
Decree to part us, bitterly repining.
My Love, in aimless love and grief,
