Treasure Island

Edward Kofi Louis

(13th October 1961 / Accra, GHANA)

Surrounded


Lust!
Surrounded by imcompetent and corrupt officials;
Illegal lust,
With contempt! !
Because of the ways of your life today.
Man, manifesto!
Past and present;
Serve, deserve!
To address the issue pragmatically;
Because, you are being surrounded by corrupt officials.
Privacy!
Normlacy;
But with the lack of enlightenment,
Because, you are being surrounded by imcompetent officials.

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
