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?



"Eternal Regret!"

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!



"Humankind’s Folly!"

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!
