Three Elegies by Helon Habila

It is always a moment of joy when I get the opportunity to share some poems with you. This time three poems by the Nigerian writer Helon Habila. His recent book was on the Chibok girls. Now three poems on the end of life for people. The end is drawing near, not jus for Chibok Girls .
