thoughts of a native
POEMS BY KOFI THOMPSON
"A Woman's Freedom"
All women, married or unmarried, can be free agents, if they so wish, at any stage in a relationship with a male partner.
"The Unhappiest Sound in the World"
Is there anything more distressing than the unhappiness felt in the distant sound of a wailing child?
O how I wish
I had the wisdom to accept then
What I could not accept
And which led to your departure
But which I now accept
Long after the event!
It is extraordinary that humankind thinks that it is the planet Earth that is imperiled by global warming – when it is humanity itself that faces possible extinction
The earth will eventually recover from the most egregious of environmental degradation and continue its cosmic journey – long after all the world’s living creatures have disappeared!
