Before Your Time - Poem by Edward Kofi Louis

Date, mate, late, hate, fate, ate, gate, pate, rate, sate;
Why should you die before your time? ! !
Oh Isaac,
Oh Teyi,
Oh Yaw,
Oh Adjo,
Oh Kwarley,
Oh K.K.,
Oh Dan,
Oh Shamoo,
And all others who died so early on this earth;
But such is life at times without a clear reason to us!
