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.
