Treasure Island

Edward Kofi Louis

(13th October 1961 / Accra, GHANA)

Of One Thing


Head, heard!
With a friend of yours;
Shade, crusade!
Of one thing,
And, to fall short.

File, stifle!
To prove yourself,
Fish, fished!
Questionable,
But, something is fundamentally wrong with you.

Age, dotage!
Old and weak;
Mars, marsh!
Living a normal life;
And, of one thing.

Sole, solemn!
Revealed,
A candlelight provession;
Accompanied,
With the muse of the works in the land of the living.
