Yesterday's Seeds Today's Harvests

Yesterday they laughed at me to scorn
When I attempted to warn them of the sting
Underneath the bonnets of the wayward skirts

Today I saw them in town
Grieving for one of their own
Who was frozen in a horizontal pose
Too late to change his prose

Thats awful. AIDS, right? Have the others learnt?

Hmmmm...He who laughs last huh?

Uber perceptive Kwegyirba!
Nobody learns anything these days.
The degree of fatalism is simply shocking in the society.
I have personally heard people say 'everybody will die so what difference does it make whether it is today or tomorrow'.
It is so sad.

posekyere said...

Yes Enkay.
I certainly could not laugh though.
In my heart I am still crying for the unnecessary deaths to stop.
What can one do except to continue to hope and pray that we all come to realise that there is a merciless killer prowling around the block.
