One of my student asked me: “Sir, how can someone explain the absurdity of war in The Dining Table by Gbanabom Hallowell?”
Judging from my own point of view, I believe her question was navigated toward the irrationality of war or act of warring.
The irrationality of the war led to homelessness causing the peaceful dwelling souls to gather and dine painfully on a hypothetical “dining table”.
Destructiveness and insecurity in another case gave rise to the people’s homelessness, and made them strove for survival, evacuating their bullet excavated homes to run till their “boots became suddenly too reluctant to walk” while cholera broke its spell on their cracked lips and left them wander with ill health.
