ABOUT THE CANKER THAT IS EATING DEEP INTO OUR DELIQUENT SOCIETY AND THAT IS CORRUPTION EVERYWHERE

HUNGER PREVAIL
THE PEOPLE TRAVAIL
BUT THERE IS WAELTH ENOUGH FOR ALL
WHO WILL GET US THE MAGIC POT AND SAVE OUR LOT
WE ARE THE MEN OF HONO
WE HAVE THE ANSWER
GIVE US THE POWER
AND WE WILL DELIVER

THESE WERE THE WORDS FROM THIRSTY HEARTS
NOW THE TABLE IS LAID
BUT FWE ARE THE SPOONS
WE WAITED PATIENTLY FOR MOONS
WITH HOPES TO HAVE OUR TURN SOON
WE GAVE THEM OUR TRUST
BUT OUR TURN IS LEFT TO RUST
KOFI GET A JOB ,CRIES THE POOR MOTHER
MOTHER WHOM DO I KNOW ON THE SOCIAL LADDER
WE KNOW THEM YES WE SAW THEM AND THEY AW US
OF COURSE WITH CLOSED EYES THEY BEGGED FROM US
CRIME FOR BREAD IS THE ORDER OF THE DAY
POWER HAS LOST ITS FOCUS AND FALLEN ALONG THE PATHWAY

WHERE ARE THE MEN OF HONOR ?
WHAT HAS BECOME OF OUR POWER?
DON'T YOU REMEMBER ?
THEY PROMISED YERS PROMISED TO SET OUR TABLES
BUT THE COOK HAS MORE APPETITE THAN THE GUEST AT THE TABLES
THE MAGIC POT IS IN THE HOUSE OF KWAKU ANANSE[SPIDER MAN]
SOON THE CHILDREN WILL DISCOVER IT
ARISE YE PEOPLE DISCOVER IT AND SAVE YOUR CHILDREN FROM THE CANKER BEFORE THE MAGIC GETS BROKEN INTO IRREPAIRABLE PIECES
