Description

The Tears of the Earth, without pretense, practically holds court for environmental or eco-concerns with global ripples, staking a legitimate claim as a landmark tributary to the mainstream discourse and current debates on global warming and climate change, especially by portraying Africa, still trapped and anaesthetized in the web of post-colonial vassalage, compelled to mortgage her natural resources for savage exploitation with little or no regard to either environmental impact or sustainability. The poems are an expression of the author’s noble indignation at society’s governing elite for allowing collective natural resources “Mother Earth’ to be callously butchered, so ingloriously ransacked, liberally poisoned and gagged “Beyond Recognition” for mere lucre or “Midas’ touch” which procures and sustains the infernal binary of “Power and Pride” deified by our societies.
