21.01.2019 Opinion Hail Asante Kotoko FC, Hail Ghana! Kwabena Aboagye-Gyan
Just like the wealth of Young Scarlet,
We are and will continue to be fabulous.
I will not lie to you, even if I keep quiet,
Stones, leaves and crabs will be boisterous.
Paired against a gutsy side with a Champ League fluff,
Choosing to be calm like an old and emaciated Chihuahua,
Nonchalantly and egregiously were we written-off.
But by the scruff of the neck we grabbed CSFC de Garoua.
Gusto-illuminating, formidable and relentless as a drone,
Our dwelling place is the extremely enviable money-zone,
Clearly drawing our indefatigable fans into ineffable ecstasy,
While our “Phoow” detractors wallow in malignity and jealousy.
Eschew envy, support one another and be serious, Ghana,
In a manner analogous to Banyana Banyana and Kgatlana.
That will, by no means mercurial, make us greater and stronger.
God bless Kotoko, the Porcupine Warriors, God bless Ghana soccer.
