I Said Bread, I Lied

Akaolisa Emmanuel

We were asked, amidst this shrinking and expanding world,

of our staple; it is bread.


A noun leavened with metaphors that it chokes imagination

thus becoming a phenomenon. Paris calls it Pain.

It has followed the harvest of civilization

it is what it is if you just say the name

like man to the floor it answers to all flour


Until I piped into the complex stories of tea

where I saw the staple is us

We who are most complex

are yet simply the one



Our motto is: ‘We stand for the truth, irrespective of who tells it’. Driven by this philosophy, our aim has been to create a platform where every voice, every narrative – provided they are decently expressed –  is allowed expression. Our belief is that by promoting unfettered competition of ideas, the truth will eventually emerge. Obviously, doing this while resisting any temptation to be captured by any special interest or tendency makes survival as an online newspaper more challenging. This is why we will appreciate any support from our readers:
