THE ALLEGORY OF A TIRED MUMMY, BY OHIKHEMOTA OO VICTOR
This allegory relates the story of an evolving country, Nigeria, showing the different things she's personified to have done. Symbolism and metaphor help drive home the point that this country that we speak of, although has come a long way, has a whole lot of journey-ing left to do.
"i love the way i’m stared at like the old photograph of a dead relative.
life is nothing but an upturned mud house, rattling with shades of darkness that cry within."
