COVID-19 Pandemic: Volume I
It is no more news that the Coronavirus has ravaged the whole world and this has crippled the global economic activities of both developed and developing countries of the world. Since been recorded last year in China, the COVID-19 has been declared a pandemic by WHO. Scores of dead bodies are littered on streets, sending countries into lockdown as health service providers struggles to provide medical assistance to citizens. In this book, I wrote a collection of narrative poems on COVID-19 as a linguist, didactic in approach in the entertaining and teaching process, in addition to Bible reflections; as I intended to teach children moral lessons; and as a devotional. The book is suitable for the season, for kids to learn and to study the Bible and release tension with the poems. The language of poetry here is simple and direct unlike most symbolic literary works. I employed both use of imagery and repetition especially, to achieve her rhythms and rhymes.
