Letter from ANKOBRA - (28/03/17- Asiedu Michael)

I was a long meandering beautiful worm
Flowing along the beautiful evergreen swarms
Twisting and turning from the north east into the cape three
Many rejoiced in my beauty for my own sake
And a few more, for their grains sake
I was a delight to the herds and 
Many a woman love my company for my calm
I was the beautiful river homed in Ghana

I was loved, cherished and protected
I was a life for many and a part of the live many sort
My food was delicious and my waters, refreshing 
My way was the path of many, and my heart was the dwelling of nature
I was great, I was honored and I was nurtured
This was all the time I had many sincere citizens 

Times have changed, people and their desires as well
Laws have changed, the makers and their enforcers as well
My friends have changed, their lust and desires as well 
My life is no more, and my freshness is dead
My nakedness is opened to all, and my treasures expelled to strangers
My honor is mourned, and my beauty is tattered
My shame is pursued for shekels, and striped for the joy of their eyes

I am Ankobra, and I write to share my agony for what it may be worth
That my people have muzzled the ox that plough the land
Stop Galamsey Now. Let’s protect water bodies
