The Waste Basket

Imagine T. S. Eliot being alive in this century and writing Wasteland and The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock in today's Northern California.

About Mel Thompson

Mel C. Thompson is a writer of social commentary often centering on the oppressive roles of greed, religion and sexual taboos. He is also a very philosophical and somewhat religiously liberal person who often couches his fiction in what might loosely be called "theological comedy." He was also a publisher and published other authors and himself under his Mel C. Thompson Publishing Company label, along with other labels like Cyborg Productions, Blue Beetle Press and Citi-Voice Magazine. As an amateur musician and part-time radio personality, he appeared on KMEL as a nerd rapper and geek-philosopher. He earlier wrote Buddhist hymns and ordinary pop songs and posted many of them on YouTube. He survived as a security guard and temporary office worker for decades before going out on disability due to a host of physical and mental health problems. Before then he wrote and published thousands of pages of poetry.
