Psalm of the Oppressed is a satire that uses sheep and hyenas to show exploitative relationships among people. It lampoons political corruption based on nepotism, greed, cronyism, egoism and myopia. It explores some strategies which all oppressed people can apply to bring about change. For, example the book admonishes all those oppressed to cultivate the culture of doubting and questioning things instead of accepting them hook, line, and sinker. It questions the status quo that seems to reconcile the oppressors and the oppressed without the former redressing the latter. Most importantly, the book seeks to challenge colonialism based on foreign culture, beliefs and systems that felled the ways of life of the oppressed. Essentially, the book champions the oppressed to seek their manumission through toppling the status quo.
