EO & Betting Mold: A Theater of AG’s Judicial Pranks

*By Akadu N. Mensema, Ph. D.; Post-Grad. Dipl.

The 25 charges that never were
EO thievery charges have been stolen
By the AG’s Office
Stolen from AG’s office being molded
25 BIGGEST charges all gone
While molding the AG’s Office
For a theater of judicial pranks
Oh! Ghanaians
The AG is finally lost, losing it
Has gone legally berserk in her own office
Thieves with 25 Charges are free
Free to roam in our minds
Even as we laugh at the prank
Laugh as the molding of AG goes on
Let us look for the thieves
They are in the AG’s mindset of office
Haunted by the witch-hunters of EO

Betting on a mold is molding justice
Molding justice, mocking justice
Marauding justice, murdering justice
That is hunting the hunters
Worse than Kangaroo’s biography
Architect of kangaroo courts
The “Wizard” Tsatzuu-Azizau
Made an oil kingpin by King Ridge
Knew Nsawam is for kangarooed criminals
That Korle Bu is for the sick
And so the wizard became sick
And happily lived in Korle Bu
His heart disease
Became heartfelt happiness
When a handsome pardon came his way
And the Kangaroo Man goes to work
To please the King Ridge
With his chief linguist Milling in line
And our infesting legal Molding in tow
Marauding justice in Ghana
Molding judicial pranks
For political vindictiveness

Forget about the Mold’s lesser charges
And count 25 major charges on your fingers
You must have more than ten fingers
And ability to laugh at judicial pranks
And so the Mold
