THE LEASHED GOAT BLEATS By Daniel Kojo Appiah A lone tree stands. A lone leaf falls As several others follow. The lone tree stands tall But it may not by tomorrow. The leashed goat bleats… It tugs, ever so forcefully It chokes, ever so dangerously. It tugs! The lone tree shakes As the goat’s neck bones Almost break. It trips on a random stone, Landing on its bloated side. The lone tree shakes! The leashed goat bleats! And still, With goatly resolve it repeats It tugs! But as the rope Begins to fray, And the goat Unafraid. The rope snaps! The tree breaks! And the goat now free, Bleats no more Dying a free goat. Daniel Kojo Appiah is a Ghanaian poet and Spoken Word artist. He has been writing poetry since 2004. He is an undergraduate of Regent University College 2013, Ghana. Daniel is the First winner of Ghana Poetry Prize.]]>
