A Poem: Ghana Expects No Less From You

Change is coming

Change has arrived


The seeds sown seasons ago


Have sprouted


The storm has erupted


We are caught in the belly of a ripe tsunami





Those expecting change


Exchange glances at the budding pregnancy


The baby of change is waiting to be delivered


Is it a monster bastard fathered in awkward economic straits


By bumbling menstruating goons?




Change, yes change did you say?


Wait no more


The people’s popular protests


Have won the day in the Arab world


Yet we in these parts want a better change


Not change for the sake of it


Yes, change arrives like a tsunami





Chase away the political charlatans


Chastise the cheating political cheats

Expose the hard-nosed double-tongued rabble-rousers


Change the guards


Guard the changes from relapsing into the status quo ante


Ghana expects no less from you





Change your lowbrow education


Seek quality and higher education


Cut the cackle and talk sense


Ghanaweb is for sensible sages


Not forum for insane rages


Use the forum with decorum

Ghana expects no less from you





Stop the tribal diatribe


Cease the insensible ceaseless political altercations


Discontinue the dirty dissing drama in the diaspora


Ghana is for you, me and us all


Better Ghana for generations to come


Ghana expects no less from you





Are you a cookie


Give Ghana your talent

Are you a rookie


Become Ghana’s Mark Zuckerberg, the technopreneur


Or better still, a Charles Peprah or an Asamoah Gyan


No matter your station in life


Ghana expects no less from you
