"Peter Adegbie’s collection starts with a powerful and memorable invocation to the gods of his homeland. The rest are the poet’s cry for the innocent girls of Nigeria unkindly abducted by senseless Boko Haram, howls to the west for rationality in the treatment of refugees in Calais covering the topics that embarrass the selfish “civilised” community today. Throughout this poetry the bones of the dead weep for sanity in a world which has become self-centred, a “talking drum without a drumming stick”. Line is piled upon line, image upon image, the result is an incredible energy, which is poured out on every page – these are delightful poems."

- Jack Mapanje
