——“Spirited souls”——-
(To Tetteh-d-Muse & The Haymaker)

I

With you 2 doves
I have learnt to hover
over island of tears
I have learnt to ride
inside canoes of hopes

II

With you o’ 2 birds
I have leant to dance
before my 7 molars
chewing bones
and sharing tales
with mighty under
this mahogany

III

With you 2 aphidians
I have learnt to draw
words on the shore
I have learnt to forge
golden letters into the
scrolls of hearts

IV

The paths came crossing 
we shared dreams on it eyes
drunk to our wits
gallant fancies of a future
a future to paddle the canoe together

V

With you o’ 2 ‘abronoma’
I would sing along
this road of poetry
till this virgin land bought
gets tilled and cultivated
o’ spirited souls
