Ashawo

Ashawo

By the roadside is thy home
One stick of cigarette
One bottle gulder

Standing for men of unzipped trousers,
and dirtiness fills thy life

You have killed thy womb for money
cries of aborted children follow thee here and there

You feel the world to be on thy waist,
There lies your multinational company
that sinks like a swamp

Any man is on board
Money for hand
Back for groundy waist,
There lies your multinational company
that sinks like a swamp

Any man is on board
Money for hand
Back for ground
