With the earth of structure and the air of rhyme, the water of rhythm and the fire of passion, Kukogho Iruesiri Samson weaves his own brand of poetry, keeping faith with the old traditions, yet inventing new ones. This collection of poems addresses much, from the struggle to bury memories of bitter childhood to the agitated demand for a better world; if Poetry is, sometimes, difficult to fathom, you will find the effort, in this case, vastly rewarding. Like the author himself asks, "What can words do?" In this collection he shows that they can do anything; that they can do everything.
