Columnist: Opare, William O.

The question is “WHY?”

Why do we pride ourselves with oil?
When we can’t manage our agricultural sector
Why do we declare war on corruption?
When corrupt men still feeds on our ports
Why can’t I sell on the road?
If there’s no employment for me
If teachers are the backbone of every success
Why should they cry over their pay?

Why should it be about NPP and NDC?
When people are dying of cholera everyday
In this civilised era, husbands still don’t sleep
When their wives goes into labour
Why should it be your interest?
Whiles others suffer in pain
Why do we preach of a better education?
Whiles our children, school abroad
Why should we even vote?
If no one can tell us the truth

Why won’t we blame the government?
If no one wants to take the responsibility
Why do we go to the embassies early?
When we always caught up in traffic to work
Why should I lie in your bed?
Before I get employed
Why do we preach patriotism?
If we watch Manchester instead of Kotoko
The question is “WHY?”
