Because the prophet lied
Thousands have died
And thousand more will follow
Because of the lies of this strange fellow.
~ Ekenyerengozi Michael Chima
THE PROPHET LIED is a kaleidoscopic time capsule in poetry. From the first poem to the last one, Chima’s eclecticism runs like blood through the veins as he addresses all the issues of life on earth from the classic temporal to the spiritual in all existential circumstances with provocative thoughts and evocative figures of speech.
