Treasure Island

Edward Kofi Louis

(13th October 1961 / Accra, GHANA)

Twirl, swirl!


Elements,
On cement slabs;
Twirl, swirl!
With your muse.

Love!
With a kiss from the heart;
Like, 'Beauty and the Beast'.

Hall, all!
just die and you will see how many love ones you do have,
In Ghana! !
Where, Ghanaians spend more for the dead than the living.

Life!
I am always hopeful;
With your sweet muse and, with your sweet love.

Spare! !
Expense,
Like the dancing pallbearers;
But, Ghanaians do care more about the dead than the living.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
