(Including of course those who gave the orders)" (Wole Soyinka, A Shuttle in the Crypt, p.59) He also explains the diction of the poems from this section: "The form was quite arbitrary, something short enough and as self-containing as possible to remain in the head until, at nighttime or in a slack moment of surveillance I could transfer it to the inside of a cigarette packet or an equally precious scrap of salvage."
