Kofi Awoonor – The Anvil and the Hammer

Caught between the anvil and the hammer

In the forging house of a new life,

Transforming the pangs that delivered me

Into the joy of new songs

The trappings of the past, tender and tenuous                                    5

Woven with the fibre of sisal and

Washed in the blood of the goat in the fetish hut

Are laced with the flimsy glories of paved streets.

The jargon of a new dialectic comes with the

Charisma of the perpetual search on the outlaw’s hill.                     10

Sew the old days for us, our fathers,

That we can wear them under our new garment,

After we have washed ourselves in

The whirlpool of the many rivers’ estuary.

We hear their songs and rumours every day                                       15

Determined to ignore these we use snatches from their tunes,

Make ourselves new flags and anthems

While we lift high the banner of the land

And listen to the reverberation of our songs                                      20

In the splash and moan of the sea.

We are resetting the game!

ClassHall is built on game design principles, and the top performers are the MVPs!

By 11:59 pm Dec. 31st, 2019, we will reset all user performance data, including points and ranks to enable newcomers compete favourably for the limelight!

Prizes will be given to the top 5 MVPs of the Hall of Fame, at the end of the 2019/2020 academic session.

Earn a referral fee per user for recommending us to your students, colleagues and school admins.

Heard of our TRC?

We believe teachers should earn their full reward on earth!

Congratulations to the TOP 5!
