Bean to Bar
The orange of the sunset as the farmer hunts for cocoa,
The green of the leaves of the big cocoa tree,
The maroon of the tree as the farmer shakes it.
The yellow of the cocoa pods as they fall to the floor.
The silver of the cutlass as he cuts the cocoa pods.
The brown of the cocoa as he puts them on the banana leaves.
The gold of the sun as the cocoa beans dry.
The cream of the scales as the man weighs them.
The colour of the money as the farmer gets a fair price,
The beeping of the truck as it gets stuck in traffic.
The hooting of the ship as the beans are shipped to Germany.
The licking of the fingers as the people test the chocolate.
The chugging of the machine as it makes the chocolate bars
The chinging of the money as the people buy Divine Chocolate.
The smile of the people of Ghana as they live a better life.
