We dreamt with hope

For accountability

For probity

For transparency

And we shouted JJ JJ JJ

Let the blood flow

Our pedagogic vanity

His revolutionary conceit

And the blood flowed

In reality it was what it is

Our dream deferred

Our quest for WOYOMES

It is a new day in Ghana

Kutu & co have returned

Saint Liman has returned

All cloistered in grace

With evocative poise

They are petals in our midst

In our withering garden

They are happy for all

Those celebrating Woyome

The financier of the NDC

The re-builder of the Castle

The healer of Atta Mess-iah

The new god of the Volta

Kutu & co are here

Happy for all of us

For our skillful strides

In probity

In transparency

In accountability

In nation-building

Col. Roger Feli is here

Murdered for a loan

For taking a 50, 000 loan

Fifty-thousand old cedis

Col. Feli thanks all Ghanaians

The Volta Youth Group & MPs

All who hail Great Woyome

For his theft of GHC 58 million

Saint Liman is wielding his kola

Liman is drinking his whisky

That was what JJ told all of us

So Liman is forever kola-ed

So Liman is forever whisky-ed

Ah! Liman is happy for JJ

For JJ’s present huge wealth

Wealth that defies probity

It is a new day in Ghana

Kutu & co have returned

Saint Liman has returned

All are happy for Ghanaians

For the educated thieves

Thievery Socialists

Thievery Legon lecturers

Thievery student leaders

Thievery WDC/PDC thugs

Today they are alive

They are all billionaires







Rojo Nunoos

E. T. Mensahs

Asiedu Nketiahs

Pay-Vulture Obengs

Kutu & co are here

Happy for all of us

Happy to see our heroes

Eternal evergreen heroes

To see Woyome the Great

In heroic mythical pose

Hail the Great Woyome

Lionized by all

Baptized in the Volta

Dripping with nationalism



By Kwabena Adjei

The master of cat-ting

Has now cut his teeth

Kutu & co have returned

Saint Liman has returned

They are happy for all of us

For our great strides

In accountability

In probity

In transparency

Happy that we have seen it all

Happy that we have heard it all

Happy that we are in full circle

Fooling hope

Happy that we have had it all

Kufour’s Hotel

Mills’ Woyomites

JJ’s Nsawam Cannery

It is a new day in Ghana

Our sterile seasons of anomy

Darkness has besieged us

Our filmic signification
