The Unfaithful Bride
'The Unfaithful Bride' is a dramatic collection of poems that encapsulates the palpable indifference between pastor and his bride. It is imbued on the unfaithfulness of the rider's bride, who has never meant good for her lord. As a result, the poem is a metaphysical piece of art wherein the poet uses a mechanical object to articulate the phenomenon of nuptial indifferences between a couple. There is no direct relationship between a motorcycle and a bride, but through the use of metaphors, the poet illustrates a clear link between the two seemingly unrelated ideas. To his credit, the poet Fortune Nwaiwu, is able to achieve this very well. The poet is believed to have been a fan or an avid reader of George Herbert's poems, especially that of his "Pulley".In this collection of poems, the poet attempts to convey the pain and suffering some pastors undergo during the course of their ministerial careers. The poet-persona laments on the manner in which his motorcycle has disgraced and disillusioned him before the eyes of men.
