To leaders of famine is a poetry book with a message to world leaders and the people with little understanding of some forms of poverty Africa is currently facing.
In this poetry book, I used the simple poetic language to bring out the deep meaning of problems in the world. I tried to identify some current world problems so that readers may also try to find solutions to these problems.
It is my hope that this poetry book will not only give pressure of reading but also give readers the eye to see and know the reality of why the world, in particular, Africa still faces problems that would have been solved in the early iron age period.
