Martin Amidu

We salute you

We celebrate you

Like Paga Crocodiles

You will be remembered

Deified like Paga Crocodiles

We salute you

Martin Amidu

The brave son of the North

They say you speak truth

You speak truth to power

Truth to timid Simpa Mills

Truth to our poisonous Mold

Truth to the NDC-Team B

Truth to the NDC’s rented press

Simpa Mills hates the truth

He fired them all


For calling Mills Konongo Kaya


For coining Team B


For saying Mills is useless


For stating NDC’s gargantuan crimes

Mills is celebrating Woyome

Mills has eaten Mould’s mold

The Castle Mafia has won

Preening feathers of pride

Feathers of power

Feathers of greed

The WHITE Volta

Is silent

The RED Volta

Is silent

The BLACK Volta

Is silent

The true Volta is roaring


The NDC predator

One man with GH 58 million

Treasures of theft

One Man with GH 58 million

Our poverty lingers on

Praising our emaciated faces

Poised in unsanitary environment

Poised in our treasure trove

Of enriched Korle Lagoon

Our acidic poverty

No water

No public toilets

No electricity

Pot-holed roads

Uncompleted roads

Schools under trees

Broken hospital equipment

Street-kids living with mosquitoes

And Woyome is defended





Consecrated by some

So our sufferings arise

Sufferings summon Woyome

Ah! Amidu has vanished

Through the teeth of Mills

Law Professor

Yet clueless


Yet sadistic


Yet a hypocrite


Yet violent

Amidu has vanished

Paga Crocodiles are no more

The Northern Youth Groups

Ah! They are silent

In Salaga

They were silent

In Tamale

They were silent

In Bolga

They were silent

In Kumasi

They were silent

In Accra

They were silent

The crocodiles are silent

And the WHITE Volta is silent

And the RED Volta is silent

And the BLACK Volta is silent

But the Castle River is roaring

Roaring across precipices

Roaring across divides

And Mills is the sacrificial stone

Amidu is the sacrificial victim
