“The Minister of Employment and Social Welfare, Hon E.T Mensah says it is time

party founder and former President Jerry John Rawlings and his wife gave up

their "shares" in the NDC and allowed the party to grow” (Ghanaweb May 6, 2011).

P/NDCers’ visceral sycophancy

The beneficiaries of JJ’s chaos

When JJ demonized Liman

When JJ demonized Kufour

JJ’s memoir of waywardness

The divisive FIREMAN

The flowery polarizer

With bristling thorns

P/NDCers celebrated JJ

They harvested the JJ-isms

They became filthy rich

Today JJ demonizes Mills

Privileging NPP in 2012

Path-ing NPP’s victory lap

And JJ has become a LEPER

Today P/NDCers are crying

P/NDCers made rich by JJ

Today stand on stolen wealth

Taunting their HERO JJ

For RE/PLAYING his role

Role of demonizing all

Role as a polarizing thug

Role as a divisive goon

Role as a FIREMAN

The Obonsam FIREMAN

Today JJ is a LEPER of fate

Yes, yesterday P/NDCers loved JJ

P/NDC sycophants admired JJ

The sycophants worshiped JJ

JJ’s phlegm was their holy water

JJ’s cough was their godly thunder

JJ’s diseased fart was their oxygen

JJ’s cronies of rags to riches fame

Wielding roses of murderous bid

Wielding bouquets of divisiveness

Wielding garlands of violence

Wielding fountains of anarchy

His fiendish flaunting friends

The beneficiaries of JJ-isms

Stood by him all these years

Years when JJ criminalized Kutu

Years when JJ criminalized Liman

Years when JJ criminalized Arkaah

Years when JJ criminalized Kufour

In all these years JJ’s cronies gained

Perennial stomach politicians

In the pay of wanton politics

Now JJ is burning Snail Mills


At his crafty arson-ing best

Burning NDC-Konongo Mills

JJ is just doing what does best

Yes, what he did in the past

And P/NDCers are now crying

JJ is now a LEPER among them

Today JJ is a LEPER of fate

JJ is shunned like a leper

At the P/NDC circus of health

A bolt of harmonizing fate

A paradox of savage indignation

P/NDC cronies made rich by JJ

The perennial stomach politicians

The Rags to riches P/NDCers

Those who fetishized JJ

Watered JJ’s megalomania

JJ was their fountain of life

The clueless Legon Socialist

The wayward WDC/PDCers

Needed a petal out of poverty

Their watershed of power

Their lifeblood of wealth

When JJ demonized Liman

When JJ demonized Kufour

They all cheered JJ on

Their gateway to riches

The Nketiahs cheered

The Ahwois cheered

The ET Mensahs cheered

The Eddie Annans cheered

The Sherry Ayiteys cheered

The Allotey Jacobs cheered

The Cecilia Johnsons cheered

The Hannah Bissiws cheered

The Afotey Agbos cheered

The Sati Ocrans cheered

The Fiifi Kwetteys cheered

The Teye Nyaunus cheered

JJ the murderer of hope

Shallow priest of probity

Reprises his divisive role

His cronies won’t cheer

The stomach politicians

P/NDCers stomach ideologues

Preyed with JJ the Vulture

Preached with the Vulture’s beak

Perched with the Vulture’s claws

Soaring on, circling on

Right on the arc of fate

Hovering with JJ like flies

Like flies over a political corpse

Konongo Kaya Mills’ political corpse

Now JJ has gripped P/NDCers’ throats
