The book, Horns and Tusks is a poetic dissection of human struggle; the fight for survival, or survival of the fight. It is a collection of poems which highlight human life emerged in the struggle for survival, and this is very real in Nigeria, especially, the Niger Delta region. Nigeria is a country with vast deposit of crude oil, solid minerals and well talented populations, but its people are severely impoverished due to greed, negligence and corruption. It's a tale of 'crumb eaters' on the table of abundance; a critical analysis of socio-cultural, economic and political impunities and the burden of a giant in Africa. The horns and tusks are symbols of strength, royalty, and divinity, but also the points of struggle, vulnerability and susceptibility. At the points of our strength, we fumble and stumble under the weight of our impunities. The book Horns and Tusks deals with other themes including life, love and romance.
