“Assin North MP Kennedy Agyapong has officially been charged with treason. This was confirmed by the acting Director of Public Affairs DSP Cephas Arthur. He said the MP will be arraigned before court, Wednesday to open his defense. Agyapong was arrested Monday, after declaring war in reaction to attacks on New Patriotic Party supporters during the biometric registration exercise” (Ghanaweb April 17, 2012).

Mills! The saint of war

The cult of war-mongering

Captaining hypocrisy

Captaining vindictiveness

Agyapong has been arrested

Not for his loose words

For his WOYOME battles

Mills! The Asomdweehene

Apostle of a “Kenya” in Ghana

Mills is leading us to war

The bird of prey in full flight

Mills has led the NDC to war

Mills is leading Ghana to war

Ken Agyapong chose a battle

Choose a silly battle

Choose loose war of words

Of interjecting hope

Mills is the one leading us to war

Ken Agyapong chose a battle

Choose a silly battle

Choose loose war of words

To inspire competence

In Mills’ incompetence

I salute your boldness

I salute you Ken Agyapong

Even for mis-speaking

For inspiring hope

Against Mills’ boys

Against the BNI, CID

We see them all

Stomach politicians

Who impoverish peace

And who market war

Mills is not a policeman

But he polices his hypocrisy

Hmm! Hypocritical Mills

Ah! Vengeful Simpa Mills

Ah! Mills got his wishes

He CID-ed Ken Agyapong

For publicizing Woyome

For taking the war to the NDC

For speaking truth to power

Truth to Mills’ incompetence

I salute Kennedy Agyapong

For inspiring hope

Against the BNI

Against the CID

Against Mills’ boys

Team B Boys

Boys in the pay of chaos

Boys as Aides of War

Boys as Deputies of War

Boys as Advisers of war

Boys who insult women

Boys who have never worked

But today are Mills’ Aides, Advisers

Atta the Mess-iah

Konongo Kaya

Kaya-ying war

Threatened a “Kenya” on Ghana

Mills the Fante Prince of Peace

The NDC’s Asomdweehene

Patent war songs for Castle boys

War hymns from Asomdwee pulpits

Litanies of war-mongering

Ah! Mills says he is not the police

In his very police state

Where the BNI is kinship

Where the CID is kinship

Kinship-ing chaos

Police state of Mills

Of reckless Aides

Of careless Deputies

Of thoughtless “Spokesboys”

Of the rudderless Castle

A ship afloat with boys

Boys who want war

Who use words of war

Words of war as policy

History has arrested Mills

History has detained Mills

Not in the nooks of the CID

Not in the necks of the BNI

History has arrested Mills

History has detained Mills

The incompetent Mills

The most useless leader

The hypocritical leader

Mills is leading us to war

Incompetent Mills

Hypocritical Mills

Vindictive Mills

Mills is leading us to war

Adjapong chose a battle

History is our hope

It will peel off NDC’s wrinkles

Of democratizing civil war

Of mummified incompetence

History is our hope
