*By Akadu Ntiriwa Mensema, Ph. D.

“P. V. Obeng, Kofi Totobi Kwakye, Ato Ahwoi, and Kwamena Ahwoi, all of the NDC, say their attention has been drawn to a scurrilous anonymous tract circulating within the NDC circles and in some selected media houses obviously in reaction to their perceived roles in the administration of Atta Mills. A joint public statement released by the four on Tuesday read; ‘we have in the past been very concerned about similar publications in which we have often come in for unfair attacks and

criticisms’” (Ghanaweb February 16, 2012)

Our silence

Our cowardice

Have nurtured

Have flowered

Have given bouquets

To the Socialist thieves

Legon Socialist vultures

That patented our poverty

That preys on tacit Ghanaians

Like the vultures & a carcasses

Socialist predators

That preached poverty

Ah! One man one toilet

Today they are billionaires

Today each has 2000 toilets

The Ahwoises

The PV Obengs

The Totobi Kwakyes

Ah! Hypocritical Socialists

Who just wanted to steal

To enrich themselves

To impoverish the masses

They urged JJ to kill Kutu & Co

They urged JJ to suffocate Liman

Called Liman names

“Pepeni” in the Castle

Demonized Liman

Whisky-eyed cobra

That spat kola in the Castle

The Ahwoises

The PV Obengs

The Totobi Kwakyes

Pushed the hand of JJ

To shot and kill

So JJ shot and killed

They shot and killed all

Shot Kutu in the head

Kotei in the ear

Feli in the nose

Utuka in the eye

Afrifa in both knees

Boakye in the mouth

Akuffo in the genitalia

Amedume in the stomach

The Ahwoises

The PV Obengs

The Totobi Kwakyes

The Legon Socialists

Owners of threadbare shirts

Owners of fading trousers

In suicidal “tie-and-dyes”

Nomadic academicians

Mercenary academicians

Intellectual rapists

Of school-girls

Of peanut sellers

Of banku sellers

The Ahwoises

The PV Obengs

The Totobi Kwakyes

Perverted Socialists

Lost in the wilderness

Of elitist laziness

Of elitist opportunism

They called it all

They called their lethargy

They called it Socialism

They danced with death

Into the hands of death

Dealt by JJ Rawlings

The Ahwoises

The PV Obengs

The Totobi Kwakyes

Are now filthy rich

Very rich

Kingmakers

The Tsikatas

The Botchways

The Afari Djans

The Millses

Obed Asamoahs

Kofi Awonoors

Rojo Mettle-Nunoos

The we have the non-Socialist

Who Socialized with wealth

The E. T. Mensahs

Dan Agbodakpis

Our silence

Our cowardice

Have nurtured

Have flowered

Have given bouquets

To the Socialist thieves

Legon Socialist vultures

That patented our poverty

That preys on the dead

Like the vulture & a carcass
