Friday’s Poetic Pause: “Query” by Akwasi Aidoo

This is a new feature I’m introducing on Fridays on how-matters.org, the sharing of poetry related to aid and development work. First off, a treasured poem by Akwasi Aidoo, Executive Director of Trust Africa. 

 

Query

 

We are a developing country…You say?

That we need

Time to mature?

Unity to develop?

Discipline to compete?

 

Hmm…when we have

Time

Unity &

Discipline

 

And…before we

Mature

Develop

and

Compete

 

Can we

Dance?

Dream?

Struggle?

 

Can we resist your

folly?

With justice?
