Verses From My Roost

by John Ngong Kum Ngong

Book Preview


“...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.”

Dr. Gilbert Ndi Shang, Bayreuth University, Germany
