Singing Sycophants!!!

By Abdulai Braima…

Only dead fish swim with the dirty sweep of the savage stream!

The fearless fish with steely fins will waddle through the crappy current to the very end they wish to reach!

The proud lion hits the forest path in his own determined stride, taking a direction not familiar or comforting to the humble pack!

Tyrants will never grow such long teeth if every fainting lamb was a ferocious tiger, or if every trembling fading leaf was a living tuna!

The favourite hymnal for any dictator is the lonely song of cowering silence or the lousy chorus of worshipful praise!!!

I am not a singing sycophant. My voice was not shaped to raise a tender tune to tacky tyrants!!!
