General Mosquito


Sucker of national blood


The chief of bloodsuckers


Synonymous with our elites


Our thievery political elites


Our time-honored elitist thieves


Long-standing thievery elites


Whines again in our ears


Slurring in our ears


NDC is broke today


NDC was broke before the elections


But NDC had millions of dollars


To malign their opponents


To give out chamber-pots


Mats, cutlasses, lamps, bicycles


A fleet of campaign cars


Thievery elites


Elites without conscience


Elites without moral rectitude

Elitist thieves that are celebrated


Celebrated by the impoverished


By the deprived


By the poor


By university female students


Paradox of cracked psyches


Of cowards who hail thieves





Listen to the hollow man


The Mosquito of old


Who has never been fattened


From draining our blood


The hypocrite


He who has hollow cheeks


That never fills up


Dusting our eyes


That NDC is broke


Even as the NDCers seize toilets


As the NDCers mine from toilets


As the NDCers takes over toll-booths


As the NDCers steal cars


As ministers put up houses


Even as Rawlings burns houses


To get a new state-house

State-furnished in millions of dollars





General Mosquito


Sucker of national blood


The bloodsuckers


Synonymous with our elites


The thin hollow man


The ungrateful man


He who can’t grow fat


Fattened by the state


Fattened on the state


Unlike JJ has no big belly


Big belly to show for thievery


Ghoulish in stride


Ghoulish in stealing


The thin strident mosquito


With hollow cheeks


Deceptive cheeks





General Mosquito


Sucker of national blood


The bloodsuckers


Synonymous with our elites


NDC is broke

But NDC people are rich


Looking into the horizon


Smiling and chattering


Tractor agents


Car agents


Passport agents


Housing agents


Driver’s license agents


Chiefs who went broke


Lost their gait


Lost their chiefly dignity


Like an Akuapem chieftain


Like the Ada chieftain


Like the Dagarti Chieftain


Like the Anloga chieftain


Now have chests of wealthy hairs


Assorted hairs plucked from the Castle


Rawlings is burning government’s house


His cats and dogs are safe


His expensive suits are safe


None of them got burnt


The NDC is footing his bills


The new house for chief fireman


He who knows how to set fire

He who knows how to burn





The hypocritical Mosquito


The bloodsuckers


Deceptively thin


Bloodsucker


Of elitist thieves


Town-crier with hollow cheeks


Liar with hoarse voice


Crying that NDC is broke





Elitist thieves


Killers of the dream


Crying broke


While amassing wealth
