Our President Died

Posted: December 10, 2013 in My Poems

[ In Memory Of The Late Ghanaian President, Prof. J.E.A. Mills ]

owls swan with news
today’s breath is coughing
under the sun’s tear

silent moments howl
in a thought or two:
the great one has fallen!

oman, the nation is maimed
as he is ferried by Am)kye

to where Soyinka’s abiku
torments no more

hearts hold memories
like mirror, it reflects

Our president has one gone to the village
and he returns no more . . .
