In this collection, Nigeria's former envoy to Mexico reflects on life in Mexico but also makes strong statements about life in the developing world. He takes issues with poverty and its causes: bad leadership, lack of democracy, injustice, corruption and greed. The poems offer hope in the human condition, and empathize with the suffering of the downtrodden, the poor and the weak. They are lucid, easily accessible and trenchantly engaged with, issues of social justice.
