The Last Season

Poem By Kumi William Dubois Yaw Sakyi

'He made hay
Day by day
Till the grave called to duty serve'

In memoriam
Of the dead seasons of indelible laughter
In loving memory
Of the memories of the seasons

Seasons O! Seasons O! Seasons
Cease not to come
The laughter you held with pride is slaughtered
At the altar of coward herds men

In memoriam
Of the dead seasons of brave men
Lived as demigods
In sorrowful memory of the colony of wise men


The last season
Hold on tight to the tithe
You faithful dressed in white
Wrong is right if right is wrong
Seasons of sowing comes
But Before
The season of harvest

In memoriam o seasons
Last season
You owe us no reason
For malnourished impoverished peasant farmers
To commit treason

To the carvings of the shrine where you shine
To the corners of the mosque where you learn
To the pulpits of the church where you believe
This is the last of all seasons

That when you compete you must get a trophy
And if you don’t you are compared to a puppy

21st Century Love

Love is not but is
A reflection of compassion hidden not under bedspreads lustful emotions

Moments At Pains-Ville

To measure the pain of a brother or a sister
Do not pick a measuring ruler
But measure by putting yourself in the cloth of the victim
Tears and sweat might be a symptom

Life Secrets

LIFE SECRETS

“I like the mornings but hate the mourning’s, it pains the heart to see those who matters most to you leave but who knows, no one but only God. So in this state I tell myself some life secrets.”

Buiding Bridges

Over the lake
Over the fake
Building it day by day
Hoping it creates a morally accepeted way
