Time of the Legend with Revolutionary Poet Jane SpokenWord.


 Real poetry spews hard truth into itching for -death eyes of goblin like blood-sucking unrepentant warlords. Real Poetry scalds to the inner-deepest core   the corruption oiled skins of double bellied political fat- cats with their long -tyranny cracked hands wiping human freedoms off this our once peaceful and sacred earth. Real poetry spanks heavily onto the bolt nut skulls of die-hard racial supremacists killing innocence in broad daylight. Jane Spoken word, yours is not only art for the sake of art. Yours is a verve of resistance. It is verbal recipe of resilience, revolutionary. Your protest lines heave with sorrowful tears of mothers who lost wombs in the charcoal of racial madness.

Zambian Poet Benedixio Moore Khoti pens Tales of a Pen Lord.


Tales of a Pen Lord is simply a complex journey through the vast experiences of the labyrinth called Life.It is an exquisite lens that delves deep into the tapestry 
of life and all that constitutes it.It is a rare fabric of many colors aptly twined and entwined by the sturdy quill of a brilliant Word Smith.It's a powerful concoction sweetly brewed in a poetic kitchen and graciously touches on all themes ; ranging from love to suicide. It is a swing of fate swinging like a pendulum unveiling all matters that affect man as an individual and man as a strand in the web of mankind and it is a great pointer,outlining contours that guard and guide humanity.It is a timely gift to humanity,poured out from the cores of a passionate writer's heart.
Tales of a Pen Lord is indeed a must read for it has all the savory ingredients to make any reader salivate, feed and feast upon.It is a good Paradigm exhibiting the abilities and potentials of Poets of the new Era-( Blurb by Benedixio  Moore Khoti).
