POEM: Talking to Ghana


Talking to Ghana

The sharpest trick in town is to have two radios

One on the left the other on the right

Talking loudly at the same time in the same room

Speaking for our two great patriotic parties – the NPP and the NDC.

Left says stupid and right says foolish

Both are talking to Ghana;

One shouts we made that road, the other claims the road for itself.

Meanwhile that road now belongs to potholes and an absconded contractor.

When the shouting gets over-much

And no one can make head or tails

Of what our two great parties have to say,

You do your other enthralling party trick:

Both hands outstretched to switch off the radios

And simply put one finger on the dial for the BBC.
