Another Ballad: The DIRTIEST Man in Freetown, Sierra Leone

This prose-poem is dedicated to the dirtiest man in town.
The Freetown he has soiled with verbiage
The town he literarily has littered with his phlegm
The Freetown his putrefaction punctuates - Odd
Days his bald white scrappy piece rears its hydra head
Cursing men and women fit to be his parents
But Amazing of Amazement this
Vermin thinks he is adored. Not
Knowing his oddity stinks like sulphur
Producing putrid smell like the smell of his body's liquid waste
Which folklore says he drinks when gin is in short supply

Backwards Backwards, let us reflect. Let us
Be rewinding into yester years
Protruding Scarlet with umbilical bruises around his neck,
the Baby-boy gasped and was retrieved from certain death
But not from that incidents scars years

And years later as that lack of blood flow to baby
Boys Brain and swallowing of Filth into Baby Boys
Gasping Mouth led to consequential Brain Damage
Demented Brain Damage that was to
Haunt a whole nation where Baby boy grew up to exist

Back in yester years as he lay
hopelessly helplessly the cord was finally broken
And decision was taken to name the unfortunate infant as custom demanded so it
Was decided that the unfortunate boy be named
And reason prevailed he be called either
"Oh The Dirtiest!" in English or "Ee Dorty Oh!" in Krio
After the dirty manner of his birth

And so Baby Boy Grew But not before
Demented Brain gave
Rise to a demented personality Personality
Which haunted him everywhere he landed which
In his Adolescence and manhood caused bad habits which
Included Substance Taking and Bed Wetting

Many mattresses his latter bad habit has spoilt
Drenching them with the nightly out-pouring of his bladder
Out! Out!! Get Out! Get Out!!! Just Get the Heck Out!!
You Filthy, Wretched Pis-A-Bedie Baby Boy! Get Out!
Landlords would regularly holler the above as Ee Dorty Oh
Is kicked out from place to place Stadiums
And Brothels notwithstanding, he still was
Kicked out, Out! Right out!

Before his decadent bad habits destroyed their labours
And before he desecrates them in his primitive spoof

(End of Part One)
