look, let me take a stand right here
stand toe-to-toe with you
my peace of mind right now!
so you are older than I am and so…?
so I should not say
you have spoken jazz
when that indeed is what you have done?
so I should not say it when you have messed the air?
because some forefather sat on his lazy buttocks
at some foretime
swallowed a mountain of fufu in record time
and belched out his gluttonous fill
in a lousy claim so proclaimed as an adage:
The flatulence of an elder is not to be spoken of by a child!
so you deny your own child meat
consuming all there is
and you have the nerve!
oh yes you do!
so you coin your own maxim
telling us the child must not be allowed to develop taste for meat lest he becomes a thief!
you are such a Kweku Ananse
but let it be known to you right here right now
as I take this stand
this is rebellion time!
