 Written in memory of Professor Kofi Awoonor, killed in Kenya 2013

We all know that the pen is mightier than the sword,
But some days ago the sword thought it was mightier than the pen
They lie bad!
The pen IS mightier than the sword!
Long after the ra ta tat tat of the guns have echoed away,
The ink from the pen would stay,
The words from the mighty oak would never fade away
The pen IS mightier than the sword!
Long after we've forgotten the names of those who welded the axe,
Long after their names disappear from memory,
The name Awoonor would stay,
The discharges of ink from his pen would remain etched in every one's mind
His death will open a gateway for others to do what they love
what they feel and what they desire - to be storytellers
The lie lie the idiots tried to feed us no go hold
The randomness of their sword chose a wrong victim because as long as we live, as long as we breathe, as long as we read,
our storyteller will live on.
The pen IS mightier than the sword,
Professor Awoonor, your last days were spent storytelling and creating
but your last day was not really your last day, but an ascendancy into another realm of storytellers long gone
They lie bad
Truly, the pen is mightier than the sword
They lie bad! Long live the pen of the Prof!
The pen IS mightier than the sword
