Africa Cup Of Nations! Poem by Edward Kofi Louis

Africa Cup Of Nations!

Rating: 5.0


'War zone'!
In Malabo;
AFCON 2015,
Africa Cup Of Nations!
Of the semi-final match between Ghana and Equatorial Guinea;
With Ghana players being shielded by riot police! !
As they were pelted by missiles at the half-time.
Players ducked bottles being thrown at them from the stands!
With several flying objects ending up on tthe football field;
As the Ghanaian fans also sought out safety behind one side of the goal post.
'War zone'!
In Malabo;
Watching,
As the Ghanaian fans were being attacked;
And, the match was suspended for more than 30 minutes,
With helicopter hovering over the staduim like, a 'war zone'! !
With riot police using tear gas.
