What Do You Like About Ambush By Gbemisola Adeoti

There are so much to be liked about the poem; starting from The title of the poem, The fusion of repetition and metaphor to create perfect imageries, The rural depiction within the poem, The use of nature to draw the poem closer to reality, etc.

Let's broaden them one after the other. The title of the poem speaks openly the intention of the poem. It reveals that danger is embedded in the poem and there will be hunters (giant hawk, giant whale) and preys (the people, the sinker) in the poem.

Another thing to be liked about Ambush by Gbemisola Adeoti is how the poet manage to join repetition and personification in creating perfect imageries. "The land" was repeated many times in the poem while serving as metaphors. Example is "The land is a giant whale", "The land is a saber toothed tiger", "The land is a giant hawk", etc.

It became evident in the poem that the poem held a rural setting with the usage of "saber toothed tiger that cries deep in the glade/ while infants shudder home" and "lies patiently ahead/awaiting in ambush"; is worthy of creating likeness in a reader.

The poet drew the poem close reality with the use of nature and natural things. Things like animals (whale, tiger, hawk, etc) and natural things (dusk, space, dreams, etc) made the poem take the look of reality and could be easily related to what readers must have seen or may possibly see.

Ambush is an awesome poem and it a very intelligent poet as Gbemisola Adeoti to have written such.
