Lasisi - Poem by Edward Kofi Louis

Noman can tame a tiger into a kitten by stroking it;
Show a child how to fish than how to eat fish;
And this is another message from Lasisi,
So why terminate your pregnancy? !

You were impregnated by a man but now,
You've aborted it and still walking around with other men;
But this is like another message from Lasisi,
Because you can't get rid of poverty by giving people money!
Tap them from their talents and help them from there,
For it is better to know how to fish than how to eat fish always.

We are destroyed by the destroyer and attacked by the attacker!
But one witness is not enough to convict a man accused of a crime;
So learn to do the right thing always and try to fish out for yourself.
