The Restless Run and Ruin of the Roaches and Rats

by McLayode

What first suggested itself to me was Jackbooted. I was almost accepting the aptness of this when I remembered the often used metaphor of Dr Tunji Braithwait's cockroaches and rats. And why not! The collected stories are all about the roaches and rats. The alliterative phrase Restless Ruin alighted on my mind from Professor Femi Osofisan's play titled The Restless Run of the Locusts. Borrowing and combining the distilled thoughts of these intellectual giants, I present - and you have it in your hand - The Restless Run and Ruin of the Roaches and Rats.
