The Prophet Lied

Because the prophet lied Thousands have died And thousands more will follow Because of the lies of this strange fellow.
~ Ekenyerengozi Michael Chima.

The Prophet Lied is a kaleidoscopic time capsule in poetry. From the first poem to the last one, Chima's eclecticism runs like blood through the veins as he addresses all the issues of life on earth from the classic temporal to the spiritual in all existential circumstances with provocative thoughts and evocative figures of speech on every facet and aspect of what transpires in our contemporary world. He is an unapologetic historian of his beloved country Nigeria and a romantic philosopher of the vicissitudes of life. The power of his poetry is his compelling vocabulary and captivating imagery as he loses no sight of every human experience and so he misses nothing with a poetic sense of humour. The Prophet Lied may take Chima into the pantheon of modern poetry for the classical nature of his literature makes it a timeless treasure.

The Rubicon Triangle

The Rubicon Triangle

“It is about to hatch,” he whispered to them as they ended the recitation of the creed.
The others gasped and gaped at him and exchanged glances.
“When and where?” Father Lorenzo Visintin asked.
“We shall be told on October 28,” The Abbot replied.
That was all and their meeting ended..

The summaries of some chapters.

On August 7, 2013, the agents of the anti Christ kidnap the newborn baby girl of a young virgin in Sogliano al Rubicone, a comune in the Province of Forlì-Cesena in the Italian region Emilia-Romagna, located about 90 km southeast of Bologna and about 35 km southeast of Forlì. They take the baby away in a swirling whirlwind and she is never seen again until October 28, 2031 when she is returned in labour in a grove where the phoenix is about to rise from its ashes. The anti Christ appears to offer the baby that will be born to the phoenix in a bizarre human sacrifice that will give him control over the phoenix that he will use in his quest to kidnap the Pope and impose himself as the new Pope in preparation for the Battle of Armageddon. And only the Brotherhood of the Labarum can stop him.
Brotherhood of the Labarum of Constantine I was founded by Emperor Constantine himself in remembrance of his unforgettable encounter with Jesus Christ  that gave him victory over Maxentius in the famous Battle of the Milvian Bridge on October 28, 312 . The monks always had a vigil on every October 28 at the Arch of Constantine situated between the Colosseum and the Palatine Hill, one of Seven Hills of Rome.
There is going to be an epic battle in the Valley of the Rubicon between the forces of light and the forces of darkness over the control of the golden phoenix and the child.
