AMISSAH-ARTHUR: HE LOVED BUT NEVER LOVED

????????????????????????????????????

Like a butterfly
He wandered round the world
Gaily preaching the gospel according to NDC

He cared not for his health
He worried not for what lied ahead
He lived with his innocence

They worshipped him
They ‘loved’ him
They carried him shoulder high

He stopped at nothing
To achieve something
For someone who never cared

Bullets were fired
Most he could not welcome
Bullets which would help the Elephant to triumph

He went to the nooks
He went to the crannies
He went to the world

He loved her
She loved him
They would live happily ever after

That was not to be
That was but a dream
That was a wishful thinking

He jogged outside home
Moved the body to keep it in equilibrium
But fell down motionless

Death
The destiny of mankind
Laid in ambush

It hit him
Cold in the eyes
Closing them

Never to open up again
He was embarking on that journey
Journey to the life hereafter

Tears flowed uncontrollably
Tears he needed
Tears he did not need

Tears of genuineness
Tears of the wicked crocodile
Tears amongst tears fell in droves

Darkness had fallen
Ghana went into red
Ghana went into black

Those he loved
Those he worked for
Those he cherished to the moon

Promises
Mouthwatering ones
Went to Mat

Days later
Months later
A year or more later

His house is engraved in forgetfulness
The promises
The love they showed

All vanished into thin air
All evaporated into the atmosphere
All lived not

Today
On this day
The day he made a trip to live with us

They frowned
They ignored
They scorned

This occasion
Special occasion
He was but a mere shadow in their hearts

He fought in vain
He worked in vain
He died in vain

The party he served
The man he was in servitude to
All abandoned him on this day

Matilda
She wept
She wailed

She knew
She was prophetic
It was too late

Rest well Pee Kay
Weep not Pee Kay
God is with you Pee Kay

Your people
Their love
It was empty

Happy birthday
Ex-Veep Paa
Kwesi Amissah-Arthur
