About this ebook

In GO TELL OUR KING, Betty Abah explores, albeit elegantly, poetrys prodding
yet scintillating tool to express her surprise, awe, disgust or elation at lifes realities.
These include death, corruption, oppression, environmental degradation, war,
love and elusive hope. It is a poetic potpourri of a sort, undulating in waves of sadness
and occasional delight; a harvest of a deeply creative and observant mind. Though
most of the imagery revolves around Africa, they have universal appeal. The poems
at once entice and grip you. They testify to the poetess as an emerging voice on the
African literacy scene.
