The poem “Man” by the African poet and storyteller – Elisha Bala popularly known as ‘EB’, chronicles the complexity of the human nature.
It comes from a ‘doxological’¹ point of view, seeing that the poet is the direct object and victim of an ill complexity.
Man has for long envied himself, fought with himself and killed himself many times. And what can please man? This rhetoric dances throughout this great and epic poem. The underlining tone of pain and agony gives the piece an emotional background, one that pierces the heart of every listener.
