A Poem: Ghana Expects No Less From You

Wed, 26 Oct 2011 Source: Sakyi, Kwesi Atta

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
