Poetry is a lucid expression of blurry emotions. Thumbing through a story might just enlighten you more than you expected. Get these downloads in PDF files and enjoy a good laugh or cry.

“Storytellers are a threat. They threaten all champions of control, they frighten usurpers of the right-to-freedom of the human spirit — in state, in church or mosque, in party congress, in the university or wherever.”

― Chinua Achebe, Anthills of the Savannah

    Abebi

    Cries of a baby
    Tears of Iya Abebi
    Evil some people call life
    Isn’t it darkness that brought her to life?

    At birth she takes a sweet full
    Colostrum it is called
    Nigeria, I call Abebi
    Iya, I call her forefathers

    Abebi did not grow like others

    Arise Nigeria is a collection of poems that documents the pain of every Nigerian while issuing positive measures to oust the different menaces where the country has found itself. The richness of this chapbook lies in the depth different writers went in scribbling their hearts.

    Nigeria is at the stage where the crows of the cock have been suppressed and the fish in danger of swimming in its own domain.; a center stage of having a surplus of meat yet, feasting on strong bones with sweat emanating from different pores of the body.

    For the sake of jilted souls and diverse anomalies in this entity, the cries have gotten to its peak hence, the book.
