The poems in the collection show the poet as a vatic chronicler, “pouring votive hymns unto earth”. In the crypt of his soul, Ilori shuttles between personal memories, myths, social events and historical figures to create a subtle blend of invocatory poetry in the tradition of Wole Soyinka’s darker Prison Poems. The title is suggestive and the amnesty that these poems ask for is for prisoners of all kinds – those behind physical bars and those caged in metaphysical anguish.
