Verses From My Roost

Thursday 12 January 2017, author(s)-editor(s) John Ngong Kum Ngong

This collection is both poetry and a reflection on poetry, on the creative process. In deceptively minimalist style characteristic of seasoned bards and a diction charged with intricate conceits, John Ngong Kum Ngong launches a scathing onslaught on the ruling barons of post-colonial nations who have privatised the nations’ wealth and power.
