Revolution Recollected and New Struggle Poems

by Tendai Rinos Mwanaka

Poems in Revolution Recollected and New Struggle Poems deal with, among other issues, the North African uprisings in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, and intersects into the Middle East conflicts in Syria, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, and the never ending conflict between Israel and Palestine. There are poems about the economic problems that bedevilled the world post-2008 US crash, the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations, the 99 percent vs 1 percent fight. Other poems look at religion, and how it is used to enslave people, and other poems deal with the lack of wherewithal for an end to Zimbabweans’ political problems, the refugee crisis and the xenophobic attacks it created in South Africa.
Other countries with struggle problems are Central African Republic, Somalia, the Haitian post-earthquake struggle stories, and Nigeria’s Boko Haram.
These poems previously came out under Revolution: Struggle Poems, published in 2015, and the rest of the poems are coming from my latest poetry collection I am currently working on entitled Disobedience Poems.
