Animal imagery recurs and reverberates through the collection. In the title poem, the poet prefers to sing of vultures, dogs in chains and hiding rats, rather than sweet songs/or like the caged bird praises. His song - poetry that engenders insomnia - is intended as the antithesis of the lullaby, but insomnia turns out to be a positive metaphor in the poets incursions. He writes that a mans mentality may limit his wealth, and I mankind] can transverse the earth on the back of a vampire/But peace with fellow man/Is in the heart of the unborn. Ebereonwu is a poet of the younger generation in Nigeria, a scriptwriter and film producer.
