The poem ends with the bard urging us to demand participatory democracy from our increasingly authoritarian governments, and begins with the end of the only true golden age our world has seen - the time before civilization's scourges began to afflict humanity with seemingly endless suffering.

For the most part the themes in this volume follow that old tried-and-true spirit of rebelliousness; including topics such as sex, drugs, rock n roll, love and lust to name a few. But on the more serious side it also delves into deeper existential themes such as war and peace, death and loss, loneliness and religious spiritually, so hopefully there is something in this collection for everyone.

This book of poetry will interpret the world through a variety of verbal patterns based on all types of written and verbal language.

I am not a poet! That is what I keep telling myself anyway! A poet is someone that takes the literary form very seriously and it would appear that I tend to be quite the opposite. I just enjoy playing around with words to create something enjoyable to read, something to make people laugh, something to make you think or just say “what was that?”. Who cares as long as it provokes a reaction?
