The Bard From The Sea

Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews
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.

About Rori O'Keeffe

Thank you for your interest in my work. Please be helpful and leave a review for me to ponder as I make plans for my next publication, whether the critique be scathing, lukewarm, or improbably glowing. Writing comes from the heart, and my readers' feedback goes straight to my heart and helps shape my future creations.

I'm a grocery store cashier by day, and a poet-animal by night. I also write short fiction, fairy tales, the occasional essay, and a little light erotica. I laugh at myself and cry for the world, and I make a great Egg Florentine for my frequent overnight guests. What's life without love? It's like a shell without the egg inside.

See me on Twitter, @rookee75, or drop me an email. I'll be sure to reply.

Peace & good times to all.

Review by: Flex X on July 21, 2016 :
Well written, good message, a call to action. I didn't fully get the connection between the title (The Bard from the Sea) and the content of the poem, I was expecting more of a sea story or wise sailor telling of journeys, but I suppose this is a voice calling to humanity from the infinite, a poem of warning.
