A tribute to Komla Afeke Dumor

Sagacious Komla Afeke Dumor,
Born for so much more,
Inspired us to be more,
A patriot at his core.

Intelligence, affable Komla,
Now our only words are ah!
You should have given us a clue
Now we’re all blue.

Words can’t describe our shock
Your time is out, tick tock,
You’ve left us all too soon,
Tis anything but a boon.

You’re with us no more
Son of Prof Dumor,
The family core,
We’ll tell your story – Komla’s lore.

The ever-loving Afeke
Many you asked “aleke?”
In your smooth voice: “Mini okƐƐ”
Yehowa mƐƐ sane nƐ?

Death has laid its icy hand
Who’d have thought you moribund?
So close to the end,
Now we’re reminded of our end.

Kind, compassionte and loving,
Our world privileged – you having,
Smart, facile and humble,
With words very nimble.

Mahama’s “finest ambassador”
Father mattered to you most
You’ve left the earthly coast
God’s work done – his ambassador.

Fare thee well, Agbedefu,
Swallowed by death as tofu,
May God keep you safe,
And all those you left.

Hede Nyuie!!
