A Collection of Poetry about a Decaying Society
Maggot Dance is a collection of poems portraying a decaying society in which every stratum has been infested with corruption, moral decadence and total disregard for time-honoured values. The poet sees beyond the manifestations of a failed state and shares his feelings on what causes the corruption, selfishness and moral ineptitude.
Through poetry, he recommends some hard, realistic, self-criticism that is devoid of buck-passing and the sectional mindset. It is his belief that this can be achieved through embracing a new perspective of patriotism and selflessness, which will result in a moral rebirth and healing of a dying society.
