The mob has never had a name in Ghana
The mob has no name in Nima
The mob has no name in Taifa
The mob has no name in Madina
The mob has no name in Swedru
The mob has no name in Oforikrom
The mob has no name in Bantama
The mob has no name in Kotokraba
The mob has no name in Tamale or Walewale
The mob has no name when they kill innocent civilians
The mob only has a name when they kill a soldier
Else it becomes the usual default foolish case for the state
For you are now the byword among Ghanaian mobs
Referred to by the other many guilty innocent mobs
Why did you kill a Captain? Why did you not verify his claim?
Was it because you didn’t want to find out the truth? Or was he too young to be a captain?
Was it because the devil found work for your ideal hands? Or were you just fated?
Hmmm, woe to you Denkyira Obuasi mob, for betraying us
For we had no name, but for your sake we are no longer anonymous
You have destroyed our umbrella of camouflage
You have stained our uniform and stripped us naked to be crucified by public opinions
You have uncovered our master plan, sighs, we are no longer a mob
For just the other day, they called her by name and even called forward Bob
Oh! Denkyira Obuasi mob,
You are the Judas we never wanted to befriend
But for fate, we wouldn’t have met you
But for you, we still would have been the mob with no name.
