Fear Is A Cow is a collection of poems which focuses on the African "condition" and attempts to come to terms with the continent’s beleaguered past, its present dire situations, and the uncertain future. It is an elegiac book, but one that does not grieve overly and unduly over the ills of the past. Rather, the collection of poems celebrates the resilience of the human spirit. This is a book that frames and is framed by that age-old Somali adage: "Elegy is the voice of the survivor."
