In Memory of A Late President (John Evans Fiifi Atta Mills) - Adjei Agyei-Baah

In mockery, you countered with a smile
With humor, your opponents' ridicule diffused
In muddiness, yet your slate stands untainted
Man of peace and humility
Fallen but with grace and dignity
Indeed, death does conquer all
But not your clean seat and high raised flag!

If fortune comes my way, and the office of the Ashanti King happens to consult my agency for a Manhyia resident poet, I will not hesitate in recommending the laureate apparent, Adjei Agyei-Baah.

Why Agyei-Baah?...Why him?... I will choose him because the creative effigy of the political Atta Mills in his latest poem, has strengthened the seal that marks him out as a rounded literary model.

Welldone Adjei!
