A Torrent of Terror

by Romanus Aboh

Rome Aboh's poetry unmistakably enwraps the condition of the politically and socially cannibalised segment of his society; and the beauty of the verse radiates from his facility with language as the stylist and linguist. The section "patriotism" with such poems as "hour of truth" aptly brings out the socially obligatory role of the poets whose mission goes beyond versifying and sharing their personal fantasies and urges. Similarly the poem "letter to the mp" echoes the agonies of the common masses who feel deceived by the ruling elite in their so-called democratic nations.
