Igbo is great!




Igbo is huge!




Igbo is the giant!




The sun that spins the universe -




That enlightens the primitives!




Come along,




You haters of Igbo;




Get charred in splendid brilliance.




Melt away before the rising sun;




Let your envy and your bile




Be gone for all time.




For the sun shall blaze again




From the east of the wise




And hold the centre




To the adoration of Copernicus.




Let all blood-sucking Vampires DIE!




Author's Notes/Comments: 

Written 8th December 2013 in Lagos, Nigeria. An angry response to a barage of criticisms against the Igbo from little-minded bigots in Nigeria following the publishing of Chinua Achebe's There was a Country.
