RAW anger initiated by those who embrace
racism, prejudice & hate .

RAW humor and honesty, odes to icons as human beings.
And the RAW deception of political failures destroying our world as we speak.

RAW POETRY No cliches. No punches held back.

RAW imagery swept up in the mourning of our times.

This is RAW . This is POETRY. This is a DECLARATION

Of WAR and a verbally destructive threat, a manifesto to those who would annihilate freedom
and democracy in these days of idiots & insincerity.

This isn’t just a book about political poems but about
poetry & life itself.
