Ashanti - Adjei Agyei-Baah


The edenic garden
On a desert of gold
Ashanti!

The empire whose boundaries were only penetrated
With treaties, never cannons
Ashanti!

The kingdom whose monarchy was furiously fissured
Yet could not be humbled into crumbles
Ashanti!

The people whose culture and tradition
Is a feast of smiling stars in their sparkling splendor
Ashanti!

The kingdom whose majestic steps always tame the troubled waters
Ashanti!

The empire whose gold has given the world a stool
Ashanti!

The kingdom whose installation of kings
Make the whole world walk to Manhyia
Ashanti!

The people whose hospitality
Turns strangers into natives
Ashanti!

The master weavers of kente
Tutored by no one but the legendary Ananse the spider
Ashanti!

The only people on earth united by a golden stool
Ashanti!

The porcupine warriors
Who never knows retreat or surrender
Ashanti!

The porcupine warriors
Who never run out of quills!
