We Understand the issues that make the News

The Obama Serenades

Posted by Business in Ghana on August 14, 2009

At Cape Coast,

we bowed our heads

in sorrow

and shame,

recalling the agonies

of our forebears…

the wicked complicity

of kinsmen

and sometimes

even parents…

 

At Cape Coast,

the ghoulish stench

of slavery

stared us

stiffly and

morbidly

in the face,

flaring up

our nostrils

to the wrenching

point of

hyperventilation…

Kwame Okoampa-Ahoofe, Jnr.

  1. Kwame, you have done it again. Put this words into a song and sell the first record to me. If you have a band, I will invite you to come to my palace to perform there for an American as well as an African audience. As you play and sing these words,I would like to see the emotions of audience.

  2. From San Francisco, CA – This is wonderful!
