False Dawn is a collection of poems that illustrates the reality of a people (in diverse states). It is one of the very few examples of creative writing that consciously tackles the socio-economic and political ills that plague the polity since the advent of the 4th republic. The collection is bursting with artistic images worth storing in an art gallery for exhibitions, only that while words are the colours, the painting brush is poetry. In the False Dawn you will find rhymed verses, blank verses, limericks, haikus, sonnets, and lots of free verses that are critical of a hopeless situation, and assures of situations that spark hope in the hearts of a fine people (New Hopes). That is not all about the anthology, in it you will also find poems about life, love, death, allusions to times, and poems that reflects the poet's immediate socio-cultural environment - a present and past he recaptures with beautiful verses. The poems in the False Dawn are a unique combination of everything that spells reality (a combination of gloom and glamour), castigating, or where necessary, lauding a system it was written about. All these are written in beautiful verses. Welcome to the False Dawn, happy reading. Precious Omokhowa Bello.
