SETTING SUN (for Late Prof. Kofi Awoonor)

It wasn’t evening
before the sun was missing.
It wasn’t dusk
but the sun was gone.

Who stole our source
of only food?
Who stole our source
of happy mood?

Who made us drink our tears
in
sips
of
mourning
cheers?

Who
set
the
glowing
sun
before the dusk?

“Good upon the good
Evil upon the evil ones”

***
(It’s sad to announce the death of a poet.
So sad. WRRPoetry, take my condolence.)
