Poem: We have only
Gold Coast was the ancient name
When western colonialism came
The secret of the little coast
Was just the plenty of Gold

Because minerals were abundant
The British saw the place important
Metamorphose in imperial woolen
Until the 1950’s going

But the natives could no longer stand it:
For this colonialism was never worth it!
Oh, ‘but who could face this Leviathan’,
To make grand freedom and justice stand

Alas, United Gold Coast Convention,
United some of the natives
Nkrumah and Co. came out of the captives.
And on 6th March 1957 cleared
Ghana’s independence was declared.

Since then the natives have been controllers
Both civilian and military rulers
Until the 1992 elections onward
Democracy began to move forward.

We can now boast of our beloved State
From West Africa and International gates
I believe, with the leaders of this fourth republic
Ghana will always be prominent in public.

Yea! Some brought VAT, GETFUND and others
Health Insurance, School-feeding to assist our mothers
Reducing many tattered schools under trees,
Single-spine and more are coming in full breeze.

Oh Ghana, now remember this!
Whether capitalist or socialist
Development is all the people want
Ideology should not conceive any conflict
To hamper progress in our entire polis

Oh Ghana don’t be shrouded with nepotism
Partisanship and self-centered favoritism
Just apply the eye salve of loyal patriotism
And you will see and flee from every toxic ism.

Bear in mind that every leader did his little best
Just support the current on the challenging test
For Ghanaians have “only one Ghana”
Let us unite and support forever.
