The African Vultures Of Ghana

By Rev Peter E Adotey Addo

May 2012 SUHUM , GHANA

The once majestic African vulture,

Adorning the village and the marketplace

Sadly is missing from villages and marketplaces.

Visiting the market place in my village today

My eye beheld as usual the colorful hawkers of exotic fruits.

Peppers chocking you with their aroma, dried meats and fish.

Then my eyes looked round and upward for the majestic vultures.

Sadly, they were nowhere to be seen, some used for food.

They were gone and no one in the marketplace missed them.

Neglect, ignorance, and change have denied them

Their role and destiny to be scavengers.

Gone too is a childhood memory

Synonymous with the marketplaces of our Ghana

The majestic African Vultures
