Edward Kofi Louis (13th October 1961 / Accra, GHANA)
Better Be Poor Than A Liar
Listen to advice and,
A fool has no delight in understanding;
So, better be poor than a liar.
Wine is a mocker so, be wise;
Strong drink is a brawler so, be wise;
Even a child is known by his or her actions.
A baleful veto! !
In auspicious terms;
But, regrets are not unthinkable.
Casting lots will sttle the contentions;
But, a fool has no delight in understanding.
To think the unthinkable;
But, a person who cherishes understanding will find success.
A fool's lips enter into contention;
And, a foolish son is the ruin of his fasther.
