This was your city all right but today you say you are a city dweller
Take your city and it’s opulences
For I do not want any of them
I get everything in my village
The village you dread to visit, I do not dread where I was born

Doing that will mean questioning the Supreme one
I do not have the balls for that. I love my village be it pleasant or not
I wish not to live in New York, London or Paris neither does Accra, Kumasi nor Takoradi entice me
In my village I have my beautiful farm and stream where I get all my produce and perfect my new antics respectively

But because I have an oversized abdomen they say I am a victim of ‘kwashiorkor’
Others who come to the village spew more nonsense about me
But in my village I am content, free and loved
