Unhappiness Of The Poet In Ambush By Gbemisola Adeoti
The title of the poem suggested the poet's lack of support bad
governance, even the structure of the poem with the use of repetition
"this land" gave a solid foundation for the poem to be erected on the
ground of hatred that pleased the poet.
Metaphorically, the poet compares the land to so many dangerous
animals "giant whale", "saber-toothed tiger", etc. and made use
crystal clear imageries to show how he was unhappy with the evils and
dangers caused by those dangerous animals.
