Bill NDI''s Bleeding Red: Cameroon in Black and White is another masterpiece from a poet with a deeply political vision. This collection of poems with Cameroon as the particular focal point is a paragon of socio-political and cultural alertness in verse that will get every reader on their toes. Bill NDI''s world is fraught with topsy-turvydom. It is a world darkened by experience and a keen sense of the wrongs plaguing his beloved country. He points out, without preaching, where it all went wrong, how it can, or what it will take to, be redeemed. The acerbity of Bill NDIís criticism runs from the very first poem of the collection ''Anthem for Essingang'' through ëThe Promiseí to the very last one ''Papa Ngando Yi Mimba for Camelun''. What a clime characterised by a ''clan of mbokos, clan of bandits''! It is just natural that as they perpetrate ''death and sadness'' in his beloved fatherland, nothing but ''disgrace'', ''great shame'', and ''repudiation'' awaits them for evermore.
