"By breaking away from the Conventional Western Poetic form, Micere makes poetry a more accessible and meaningful genre. Like Okot P'bitek, she adopts a native idiom to articulate the goal of self-determination in an environment that has hitherto suffered cultural subjugation. Through varied rhythms, characteristic wit, sharp satire and occasional humor, Micere manages to sound with emotive persuasion, the fundamental dimensions of human existence." (Adapted from back cover)
