Tribute to Professor John Evans Atta Mills- Part 2

By Kwesi Atta Sakyi 2nd August 2012

Oh Prof, who will your Better Ghana vision carry?
Some say you should have tarried
Are they playing God?
Your death has made many harried
Your fiery critics no longer can hold you in derision
We all mourn you in unison
Ghana and Ekumfi Otuam have lost a worthy son

A great man in death unites
Tributes pour in from right and left
Even your bitterest bashers are cowed
In death you stand so tall
In death you shamed them all
When the physical and political duels were hottest
You elected and bowed
Though it was not your wish
Death is inescapable path for a mortal
Christ our Lord and St Peter
Receive you at heaven’s portal
