"The collection of poems by the late Abshir Nur Farah (Bacadle) are huge literary treasures, created over the past thirty years (1980-2010). The book contains over 113 poems covering various genres of Somali Poetry (such as Gabay, Guurow, Geeraar, Salsal, Jiifto and Shirib)by the author and around 27 poems that were rejoinders for some of his poems which angered some people. Abshir expected his poems would instigate reactions, as he once said: "One will be angry with me [about it] and one will respect it]"-- Midna Haygu Xanaaqu, Midna Haygu Xushmeeyo, [summary on cover written by two of the editors].
