Voices by Ken Tsaro-Wiwa

I am on a mission to spark an interest in reading in Nigeria. So, I have decided to share a few of my favourite poems and excerpts from my dearest books to lure people back into literature. #ALiteraryRevival

 

They speak of taxes

Of oil and power

They speak of honour

And pride of tribe

They speak of war

Of bows and arrows

They speak of tanks

And putrid human flesh

I sing my love

For Maria
