Tribute to Mills


Today is Wednesday the 24th day of July in the year of our lord
Today marks exactly a year since the fall of Comrade Mills
And Today at 14:15, an extraordinary event will happen in the history of
On this time birds will refuse to sing
And dogs will refuse to bark
Car Engines will refuse to start
And the Cock will refuse to crow
All in respect of the fallen Hero Mills

The snakes will refuse to hiss
And the clouds and skies will turn black
The Sun will go dark and pale
And horns will refuse to sound
Televisions will automatically go mute
And the Goats will stop bleating
All in respect of the selfless fallen comrade called Prof. Atta Mills

Musicians will lose their voices
And Guitars will lose their strings so as as to stop making any sound
Trumpets will seize to blow
And the trees will refuse to respond to the command of the wind
The crying scrolls will disappear
And the sound of trains will seize
All in respect of the most humble President in our history who fell a week

Angels in heaven will halt their singing as instructed by the Most High
All in celebration of the life of the Righteous son Atta Mills
The cowardice in Rawlings shall make him stop the insults of the fallen
hero at this very hour
This is a sad but a historic day
A historic day that can never be seen in mankind's history
World leaders shall halt their speeches at this time as a mark of respect
for Comrade Mills
Rest in Peace as the whole world goes mute at the hour of your death

We shall mention your name for generations to come
And talk about your good works far and near
We shall emulate your humility and selfless spirit
And continually pray for our enemies just as you thought us
We shall name our children after you
And name streets after your name

Rest Rest Rest in Peace Comrade Mills
Whilst we weep and mourn 'cos of your fall.
Ghana and the World Unite just to honour you
