That himself, as a nation, isn’t comfortable with the way authoritative realms of power run him …through hallucinatory voices, this ‘he-nation’ cries out, yet the law enforcement and order-keepers, the police are only inebriated with alcohol … even the small fish ferociously riot
Ssenyonjo Brian Ushers on Francis Annagu’s poem Electric Fence, taken from his forthcoming second collection.
