British naval surgeon John O’Neill who was attached to the HMS Decoy at the Cape Coast Castle in the Gold Coast (Ghana) began studying a local condition called ‘craw-craw’ in 1874. The condition that he studied became known as Onchocerciasis (also known as River blindness). The poet describes the condition of River blindness in this piece.
