Yesterday's winds

Asante Fianko Isaac Snr 2001 (Nsawam)

After chases the winds
where our disappointment speaks
Calls on its own fertility
Our father's shores
mothers home of peace
turns farm for mergers
market for villains

They sat and holds freedom
drunk the deal and forget the norms
Mirrors in favor of minerals.
They sat follies
dying through the waters
tree and land speaks out from its holes
Wild wind blow with hazard
fertility eats the soil.

How can poultry of Ours turns hunters kitchens?
How can we owners of hens beg for an egg?
How an Our own silver be flated?
Our cups holds brown waters?
Sitting upon Richie's and apprehended failures beyond.

After killing Our posters and soul,
fell unto the desert of Africa
colonisation spells
prank and sympathy seen up

Afterwards, all accept the norms
Let climb the fore image with pleasant mindset and shout the seal,
to the moon
Highest sun
grit stars beyond.
Africa lacks it own image.
