Treasure Island

Edward Kofi Louis

(13th October 1961 / Accra, GHANA)

Finucane


Finucane, Cain, cane, can, in, an, if, fin, Inn, nine, fine, cine, fan, fun, face, ace;
Collusion!
Shocking,
Murder! !
In Northern Ireland.
Vail, pail!
Like a cry for help in the land of your muse;
But, a crab does not give birth to a bird.

Rate, irate!
The substance of life;
Living with the troubles as seen in your land without peace till today.
Verification! !
Collated;
And, of the actual cause!
But, the apple does not fall very far away from the apple tree.

Cuase, case!
Living with the troubles as seen in your land today without peace;
Life!
Wickedness;
To encounter,
Weakness and sorrow! !
With no change in the status;
And, they murdered a person in Northern Ireland.

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
