Gbudu Gbang

ENOUGH WITH YOUR 
IRRITATING RUMPUS 
PANDEMONIUM GBUDU 
GBANG!
ARE YOU THE ONLY ONE HERE?
"I AM MY ME"...AND SO WHAT?
ARE YOU THE FIRST OR THE 
LAST,
TO HAVE ACHIEVED THAT 
FEAT?
THE ONLY ONE CAPABLE AND 
ABLE?
IF YOU CARE....
JOB DIED WHILE APPLE, 
FRESH.

OOOOH GBUDU GBANG WHY?
WHEN WILL ALL THIS 
COMMOTION STOP?
THE LASS WAS A TODDLER 
WHEN YOU ENCOUNTERED 
ANAANU
AND STILL HARK BACK 
HULLABALOO.
DID WE NOT HAIL YOU WHEN 
YOU OUTWITTED THE 
OUTWITTER?
WHEN YOU UNWOVEN 
ANANSE'S BYZANTINE WEB
AND UNDID HIS MYSTICAL 
LOOMS, DID WE NOT PRAISE 
YOUR WIT?
SO WHY THE HARK BACK 
HULLABALOO?

I TELL YOU,WE ARE NOT TIRED 
OF YOUR EXPLOITS
BUT OF THEIR STALE 
CELEBRATIONS.
IF ONLY I COULD GET YOU 
ENOUGH WATER TO SWALLOW
TO FILL THE NOISY THIRSTY 
EMPTINESS OF UR LUMEN
THEN WE COULD HEAR THE 
SWALLOW'S CHIRP.
FOR HE TOO I KNOW,HAS A 
GREAT STORY TO TELL.
AND WHO KNOWS?
THE FEATHERED FELLOW 
MIGHT PUT A FEATHER IN 
YOUR CAP.
GBUDU GBANG!!!

    Hi Chris, this piece is for you and me and any other who gets to read it. GBUDU GBANG is actually the native Ghanaian (Ga) name for a barrel.

    Chris GBUDU GBANG is my rendition of "empty barrels make the most noise". Is that hateful? I just thought that we should always as a ppl strive for more laurels and not be boastful over the few we have achieved. Hope u get it?
