(13th October 1961 / Accra, GHANA)

Ate, private!


Ate, private!
But, with no reason to support your act;
because, you were very hungry and,
My cook prepared the Food for you.

Allow, allowance!
Allowwing you into my room;
For, you were found outside alone in the cold,
And, my cook prepared some food for you.

Nation, federation!
Coming home to meet you at my dining table;
And, i was told what occurred! !
As you were found alone in the cold.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
