KWAME ATAAPIM

D. E. K. Krampah

Kwame Ataapah was born in famine:-

He lost his parents before his birth;

He lost his sight before he could see;

He lost his teeth before he could bite;

He lost his feet before he could walk.

 

Kwame Ataapah was born in war:-

He stood on the rock and split it apart;

He tugged at the rope and tore it in two;

He breathed on the sea and burnt it up;

He gazed at the fire and froze it up.

 

Kwame Ataapah was born innedd:-

When they were eating they never called him;

When they were planning he wasn’t around;

When they were leaving they didn’t see him;

When they were killing they didn’t spare him.
